Arty-Fact: Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the 1965 book, Fox in Socks.
For fifty years the flyleaf of Fox in Socks has warned: “Take it slowly. This Book is Dangerous!” This wonderfully colourful Seussian tongue-twister was designed to help children get their mouths around language.
From Random House’s “I Can Read It All By Myself Beginner Books Series, ” Dr. Seuss’s story features two main characters, an anthropomorphic “Fox” and “Knox, ” who speak almost entirely in densely rhyming tongue-twisters. After introducing Fox and Knox, as well as props, box and socks, Dr. Seuss takes these four rhyming items through several permutations, adding more items as he goes along. This prompts Knox to complain every so often about the difficulty of the tongue-twisters.
