Things had never been the same since the paint factory exploded. The new formula for non-removable green paint would of course have been revolutionary in the conventional sense, but now they had to add an entirely new sense to the dictionary. In consequence of the igniting spark, the Earth's totality was instantaneously coated with a green rivaling even the collective green of the prehistoric trees that used to cover the planet before anyone had evolved the idea of chopping them down. This green was here to stay and people were delighted. Poets marveled at green rainbows. The Eskimos coined dozens of new words to describe snow of green hue. Drivers thrilled at the ease of maneuvering their vehicles in a world with no red lights. Green eyed boys fell in love with green eyed girls and enjoyed a green-skinned romance blessed by green stars. But despite all these wonderful changes, people still would not eat green eggs and ham.

When viewed in the negative through a good viewer, it's even more interesting... lots of purple. We'll never know how this person achieved their effects or where the original was taken. And we always thought this was a green planet (or a big blue marble in space), this just re-emphasizes it. Sweet mysteries of life...

One of my first books when I was little! But it was never one of my favorites. Maybe I didn't like Dr. Seuss's subtle hint. I preferred Winnie the Pooh.
