Winter QoTD #8

A very famous book, that has sold over 8 million copies worldwide, was written as a part of a bet. The bet took place in the 1960s, for about 50$ between a renowned author and a publisher. It went such: the publisher bet the author couldn’t write an articulate, entertaining book using only 50 different words.

The result was a 62 page volume book. The book went on to be loved by many, is still quite prevalent and brings nostalgia to many. Although he won the bet, the author always “complained” that he never received the 50$.

  1. Yes, you are correct!
    The answer to this question is “Green Eggs and Ham”, a well known children’s book written by the one and only, Theodore Seuss Geisal.
    The reason behind the tight vocabulary wasn’t just the bet though, it was to inspire young children to develop a passion for the written word and to enjoy reading.
