"I'm ruler, " said Yertle, "of all that I see.

  but I don't see enough. That's the trouble with me.

  If I could sit high, how much greater I'd be!

  What a king! I'd be ruler of all I could see!"

Yertle the Turtle, the king of the pond, is unsatisfied with the small stone that serves as his throne. He commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see further and expand his kingdom. As the stack of turtles get's higher and higher, poor Mack, the turtle at the very bottom of the pile, is in great pain. Mack asks Yertle for a brief rest, but Yertle just tells him to be quiet. Finally fed up with Yertle's abuse, the plain little turtle named Mack does something to upset the balance of power and free all the turtles.

Yertle the turtle

Great ebook.. Very colorful..could use a little more graphics..but great just as it is!

5/5 stars

Extremely well read.

I've got five of the Dr. Seuss ebooks and this one is the best so far. Some reviews say limited interaction, but actually there are multiple touch responses on every page. On the page where the the turtles stack, it counts then from 1 to 9; when Mack burps, there are actually 2 different sound effects. The Big Brag has even better reading (that's a huge compliment), but Yertle The Turtle is the king of the Seuss books so far.

5/5 stars

It's soo much fun for everyone

My high school is doing seussical the musical and I tried out for yurtle the
Turtle. This app is the reason I got the role because it's a book in your hand. We had to memorize out characters books and this app helped
