When it comes to rhyming and tongue twisters, Dr. Seuss is without doubt the master in his field. His children’s book, titled Fox in Socks, portrays an energetic character who continually speaks in tongue twisters- and nothing else. His companion, Mr. Knox, is a grumpy individual who resist’s Fox’s attempts to draw him into the game. At the end, Knox defiantly turns the tables in a long string of rhymes which confound Fox, thereby winning the game.
The book was published in 1965 and has been adapted at least in part to more than one television specials, one of them “The Wubbolous World of Dr. Seuss,” which featured the two characters in recurring episodes.
