5.0 von 5 Sternen A Power Trip Can Put You in a Sticky Situation!
The King of Didd loved to look into the sky. But he was increasingly unhappy with what he saw -- only rain, snow, fog, and sunshine. As a powerful king, he decided to change things so he could get more.

The book is a wonderful look at the perils of getting what you think you want, a great lesson for children to learn at an early age. Unlike other Dr. Seuss...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Stephen King for children
Who can forget the horrifying image of King Derwin, up to his neck in oobleck, unable to move, waiting to be buried alive? Or of ordinary people suddenly attached to their household objects? Even a child can appreciate the life-threatening nature of a permanently adhesive substance falling from the sky in volume, and the terrible deaths which would result. Let's see...

The King of Didd loved to look into the sky. But he was increasingly unhappy with what he saw -- only rain, snow, fog, and sunshine. As a powerful king, he decided to change things so he could get more.

The book is a wonderful look at the perils of getting what you think you want, a great lesson for children to learn at an early age. Unlike other Dr. Seuss books, this one is mostly in prose. The color in the illustrations is limited to green to flesh out the oobleck. The drawings and the humor though are first rate Dr. Seuss!

Bartholomew is the King's page boy, and the king's source of common sense. When the king decides to call in his magicians to create oobleck, Bartholomew's warnings are unheeded. Even the magicians give a warning, for they have never made oobleck before and don't quite know how it will turn out. Nevertheless, the king orders the magicians to go ahead. When the first green drops hit, the king decides to declare a holiday.

But soon there are problems. Oobleck is very sticky! And it's coming down in ever increasing quantities. What do you do?

The resolution is a particularly good one, for it reinforces the moral that any willful thing we decide to do can be undone if we unbend our will. (It also encourages good manners.)

Reading this book reminded me of when I was about five. I only liked to eat junk food. I begged my parents to buy ever larger quantities. Finally, my mother said. "All right. You're in charge of buying food for yourself this week. You'll have only that to eat." I stocked up on potato chips, candy, soft drinks, and other wonderful snacks. By the fourth day, I couldn't face any more junk food. I begged my mother to take back the job of selecting food for me!

After you finish enjoying the story, I suggest that you also talk to your child about how to get rid of unexpected substances. This can be a great encourager of creativity. For years, I have used an interview question that I learned during a scholarship interview while I was in high school. What would you do if you woke up one morning and the world was covered to a depth of 30 feet by ping pong balls?

A good lesson to reinforce is to encourage your child to consider what could go wrong, and how to handle that, before trying to make some change. That approach is good training for the realities of life.

Enjoy what you have!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The power of two little words!, 13. Mai 1999
Boy, this book takes me back when I was very young. I really enjoyed it. And, now that I'm considerably older, I still enjoy it. It is a story about a king who is bored with the things that fall from the sky (for example, rain, snow, etc.) and orders his magicians to make something new. They come up with oobleck, a green, gooey substance. But, when it begins to fall, it messes up everything and the king's page, Bartholomew, teaches the king the power of the words, "I'm sorry." The book was a 1950 Caldecott Honor book (i.e., a runner-up to the Medal winner) for best illustration in a children's book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mighty King Learns a Humbling Lesson..., 1. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Seuss spotlights the social dangers of boredom and excess among the royal elite in this classic tragedy. Old King Derwin of Didd has grown tired of the same old weather, year-in and year-out, and asks the royal magicians to create a new weather phenomenon. The royal directions are clear, in spite of incantations to the contrary by his advisors. Will the King be repentent following the tragic consequenses of his order? Follow Bartholomew, the page boy, as he witnesses the bizarre events unfold. Review by Logan Norrell, Age 5, Pocatello, Idaho

5.0 von 5 Sternen The King was Ooblecked, 28. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
One of the few sequels Suess wrote,it is also one of the best.King Derwin wants to control the weather and has his magicians(in their secret cave in Neeka-Tave)conjur up a brand-new substance-which not even they know all about.The oobleck storm messes up the kingdom the day it falls-and King Derwin realizes how to stop it. With a little-okay,a big-help from Bartholemew, the King sees that the best magic words are the simplest ones.

Who can forget the horrifying image of King Derwin, up to his neck in oobleck, unable to move, waiting to be buried alive? Or of ordinary people suddenly attached to their household objects? Even a child can appreciate the life-threatening nature of a permanently adhesive substance falling from the sky in volume, and the terrible deaths which would result. Let's see this one become a live-action film.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful book, Teachers can use it for science!!!, 23. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This book is a great motivational book for science class. After reading about the gooey sticky oobleck, take corn starch, water and food coloring to make your own oobleck. It looks like a liquad, but feels like a liquad and a solid! The kids love it
