The books McElligot’s Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super!, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo and The Cat’s Quizzer will no longer be published according to a statement released Tuesday by Dr. Suess Enterprises.

Scrambled Eggs Super! and On Beyond Zebra was ranked number three and number four.
Scrambled Eggs Super! was listed as “out of stock” on Amazon with paperback versions selling for $987.25.
A Virginia school district banned the author’s books from their Read Across America program on Monday.
Dr. Seuss is now racist. Consider this your woke Cancel Culture warning in the event your children are spotted with copies and/or authorities find out you’ve read these stories to your children. https://t.co/f8LxJqC72t

President Joe Biden eliminated all mentions of Dr. Suess in his proclamation to celebrate Read Across America day, despite eager endorsements of the author by his predecessor President Barack Obama.
In 2016, President Obama wrote, “March 2 is also the birthday of one of America’s revered wordsmiths. Theodor Seuss Geisel — or Dr. Seuss — used his incredible talent to instill in his most impressionable readers universal values we all hold dear.”
