What Was I Scared Of coverWhat Was I Scared Of? A Glow-in-the-Dark Encounter by Dr. Seuss (Ages 3-6)

From the original collection of stories in The Sneeches, What Was I Scared Of? now comes in its own stand-alone format. The main character (one of Seuss’s whimsical creations) meets up time and again with a pair of empty green pants. No matter what he does or where he goes, the pants are there: bicycling past in the town square; rowing along in a river; inside a Snide-field. What are those pants there for? What are those pants just standing in the air for?

Young readers–and the young at heart!–will enjoy this clever classic that teaches that sometimes scary things are more afraid of you than you are of them. Now in a new glow-in-the-dark format, readers can rediscover this wonderful Seuss tale!

What Was I Scared Of? A Glow-in-the-Dark Encounter; Dr. Seuss; $11.99; originally pub. 1961; new edition pub. Aug. 2009; Random House Books
