Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas are
just a few of the children books that Dr. Seuss is famous for. However,
none have seemed to cause as much controversy as The Lorax. Since writing
this very famous book, The Lorax, many critics pushed Dr. Seuss to create a
Lorax Part Two. They believed his ending left the problem of the story
unresolved and felt that he should have provided some kind of solution to
the problem posed. However, this task was never accomplished before Dr.
Seuss passed away.
Nevertheless, the publishing company of Dr. Seuss' books is now asking all
young writers to submit a completed version of The Lorax Part two to
complete his famous series. As a famous author, critics feel that it is
important for you to take a stand, but which side do you choose? The book
poses the position of four different people or things: the Once-ler, the
Lorax, a truffula tree, and the young boy listening to the story. However,
before you write the second part to this story, you must conduct some
thorough research. If your view is going to shape the opinion of many young
children, it is important to represent each side fairly. Not to mention,
there is a prize of $500,000 to the author that best completes what they
thought Dr. Seuss was trying to say.
