  • When it comes to scrambling, Peter T. Hooper isn't content with just any old egg! He uses something extra special for his super-dee-dooper dishes! Ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller. The four classic favourites on this exclusive CD are: Scrambled Eggs Super! Horton Hatches the Egg The Sneetches Oh Say Can You Say Specially composed music, wacky sound effects and Miranda Richardson's inimitable voice combine to bring these zany stories to life.

    Peter T. Hooper doesn't like to brag, but he may be the most creative, adventurous cook in children's literature. Searching for ingredients for his Scrambled Eggs Super, he's off on a series of egg-collecting expeditions. Wacky Seussian birds roost in every imaginable nook and cranny, and the rollicking, rhythmic text is bursting with names like Ham-ikka-Schnim-ikka-Schnam-ikka Schnopp.

  • If ever there was a children's book about an aspiring young chef, this is it. It chronicles the adventures of Peter T Hooper as he searches for the finest freshest eggs pilfered from the best tasting birds from around the world, culminating in the very finest Scrambled Eggs Super the world has ever seen. As always Dr. Seuss delights in taking personalities and situations to the extreme while beginning with a very plausible scenario. It's a tongue in cheek look at cooking written over fifty years ago that still manages to remind us (the parents) of modern day gourmet clubs that focus on extreme eating and exotics from around the world. At bedtime Amaya chooses her two books. Most of the time we start with "Ham" and end with "Super" and by the time Daddy is done reading Amaya is usually sound asleep.

"And so," he informs his friend Liz, "I decided that, just for a change, I'd scramble a new kind of egg on the range." We're off on an epic journey to parts (and birds) unknown, all told in classic head-over-heels Seussian style: "Then I went for some Ziffs. They're exactly like Zuffs. But the Ziffs live on cliffs and the Zuffs live on bluffs." Finally, after capturing a small mountain of different types of egg--from Moth-Watching Sneths, Long-Legger Kwongs, and others--it's back to the kitchen for a 99-pan scramble, with all sorts of bizarre ingredients added just for fun. To be precise, it's time for "Scrambled eggs Super-Dee-Dooper-Dee-Booper, Special deluxe a-la-Peter T. Hooper."
