Seuss App from OceanHouse

Rating: none

review by BB

Dr. Seuss Fans have another iOS app for thier collection. In The Butter Battle Book, the Yooks and the Zooks are in a long-running feud and this feud escalates. The Yooks eat their bread with the butter side up, while the Zooks eat their bread with the butter side down. The two groups do not see eye to eye, so they develop more and more elaborate weaponry to outdo each other. From a Triple-Sling Jigger to a Jigger-Rock Snatchem, who will win the battle in the end?

"Grandpa!" I shouted. "Be careful! Oh, gee!
Who's going to drop it?

Will you ...? Or will he ...?
"Be patient," said Grandpa. "We'll see.

We will see..."
