Green Eggs and Ham is a book
about trying new things. Sam-I-Am tries to get
his friend to eat green eggs and ham. The friend refuses and says he
doesn't like them, even though he has never had them. Sam-I-Am doesn't
give up. He tries to get his friend
to eat them anyway. He suggests various places to eat them and with
various creatures. The friend continues to hound him, using very funny
rhyming words as he goes. Finally, the friend agrees to try them if Sam
will leave him alone. Sam consents, and the friend hesitantly tries
them. He puts them in his mouth slowly and begins to chew. His eyes
light up. He likes them!
