Dr. Seuss’s short story, “The Big Brag” is now available as an omBook for your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
“The bear, for a moment, just sulked as he sat
For he knew that his ears couldn’t hear things like that.
“This rabbit,” he thought, “made a fool out of me.
Now I’ve got to prove that I’m better than he.”
The story tells of a rabbit and a bear, who both boast that they are the “best of the beasts”. The rabbit can hear far away, but the bear boasts he can smell even farther. However, both animals are humbled by a mere worm who looks ’round the world — right back to his own hill – where he sees “the two biggest fools that have ever been seen!”
