Pig Latin I – Century marks – learning Latin with Dr. Suess – Brief Article

PIG LATIN I: If you wish you could read Latin or could recall what Latin you learned in high school, Jennifer Tunberg and Terrence Tunberg have made it easier for you. They’ve translated into Latin some of Dr. Seuss’s classic works for children, including How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cat in the Hat. Their most recent release is Green Eggs and Ham, the story of Sam-I-Am’s persistent attempt to get his friend to eat green eggs and ham. In the end his friend relents: “Mihi placent, O Pincerna!/ Virent ova! Viret Perna! / Dapem posthac non arcebo. / Gratum tibi me praebebo!” (www.Bolchazy.com).
