Scrambled Eggs Super!

Scrambled Eggs Super! is a 1953 book by American children's author Dr. Seuss. It tells of a boy named Peter T. Hooper, who makes scrambled eggs prepared from eggs of various exotic birds.

Peter T. Hooper doesn't like to brag, but he may be the most creative, adventurous cook in children's literature. Searching for ingredients for his Scrambled Eggs Super, he's off on a series of egg-collecting expeditions. Wacky Seussian birds roost in every imaginable nook and cranny, and the rollicking, rhythmic text is bursting with names like Ham-ikka-Schnim-ikka-Schnam-ikka Schnopp.
SCRAMBLED EGGS SUPER! is much more than a mere list of invented avians. Dr. Seuss dreams up a different habitat for each bird, such as Mt. Strookoo (home of the Mt. Strookoo Cuckoo) and the sheer cliffs and bluffs where Ziffs and Zuffs nest. He creates special egg-collecting vehicles and tools such as Squitsches: long, retractable grippers used for grabbing ice-cold eggs laid by mournful-looking fowls perched on pointy icebergs.
