Friday, August 12, 1960: 'Green Eggs and Ham'

Random House publishes "Green Eggs and Ham," a children's book by Theodor Seuss Geisel (writing under the name Dr. Seuss), whose previous works included "The Cat in the Hat," "Horton Hears a Who!" and "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish." The book came about after Bennett Cerf of Random House bet Seuss $50 that he could not write a book using just 50 different words. Seuss used exactly 50 for "Green Eggs and Ham."
