On Beyond Zebra written by Dr. Seuss always fascinated me with the strange creatures and the strange letters that looked sort of like runes, or the ogham alphabet. That was before I knew what the ogham alphabet was. I think I imagined trying to write sentences with these new letters, I don't was successful in this venture.
There were a few books of Dr. Seuss that feature new creatures, from On Beyond Zebra, If I Ran the Zoo, and If I Ran the Circus are the main ones that featured undiscovered creatures. But the thin about many Dr. Seuss books is that there was usual an animal, or place with a strange and ever-long/how-do-you-pronounce that name in the stories. I definitely remember the names, and certainly imagining what those places looked like, beyond the actually stories.
What are your favourite Seussian creatures from any of the books? Leave me a comment below, Dear Readers.
Beyond the Known
When striking the last line
at the bottom of the letter Zed.
You should know there is a lot more than
what you already know.
At the bottom of the letter Zed,
there is a letter called a Yuzz.
What you already know
about life after Zebra?
There is a letter called a Yuzz,
the beginning of the 'after Z safari,'
about life after Zebra,
and all of the things that exist.
The beginning of the 'after Z safari'
will surprise you with it's diversity
and all of the things that exist,
beyond what you know.
Will surprise you with it's diversity
and maybe some rhyming,
beyond what you know;
maybe even want to know them all.
And maybe some rhyming
as you begin to explore the terrain,
maybe want to know they all,
like some sort of game.
As to begin to explore the terrain,
you should know there is a lot more;
like some sort of game
when striking the last line.
