This story starts out with
Sam-I-Am running through the hall disturbing the storyteller while he
is reading. The storyteller says he does not like Sam-I-am at
all. Then, Sam asks him if he likes green eggs and ham. The
storyteller says he does not like that food either.
Sam asks him if he would like to try the green eggs
and ham here or there, in a house or with a mouse, and in a box or with
a fox. But the storyteller is stubborn, and still says he would
not like them anywhere. Sam-I-am tells him to try them, because
he may like them. Then, Sam-I-am asks the storyteller if he would
like green eggs and ham in a car, on a train, in the dark, or in the
rain. This still doesn't convince the storyteller to try the
meal, and he says he still dosen't like them.
Finally, Sam-I-am asks him if he would like them
with a goat or on a boat, and the storyteller gives up and tells Sam
that if he leaves him alone, he will try them. The storyteller
tries the green eggs and ham, and realizes that he likes them very
much. He names all of those places and things that he would try
green eggs and ham with, and thanks Sam-I-am for making him try them.
