Yertle's story leads off with his attempt to build a bigger kingdom on the backs of his loyal subjects (literally ). ") But a plain little turtle named Mack--stuck at the bottom--decides he's had adequate. (" I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down on the bottom we, too, must have rights! King of everything he can see, Yertle orders his turtles to stack up under him to develop a towering throne. (" He made each turtle stand on another one's back and he piled them all up in a nine-turtle stack. ")

Following Yertle's downfall, a whiny girl-bird named Gertrude Mc Fuzz wishes she had two feathers, just like Miss Lolla-Lee-Lou:"One droopy-droop feather. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes That one specific feather made Gertrude so sad. Meanwhile, in"The Massive Brag,"a proud rabbit and an even-prouder bear duke it out in a battle inside the senses, arguing more than who's the best in the beasts, only to obtain their clever comeuppance from a wild-eyed little worm."But even when Gertrude gets her wish--and then some--she finds that vanity has its price. And, oh! That's all that she had.
