My favourite Cat in the Hat book is Green eggs and ham because

The main source of info comes from wikipedia

I have never really read a Cat in the Hat book properly, however I have came across it sometime in my life, but to long ago to remember anything. Therefore I did research on a particular Cat in The Hat book in order to write this article.

Green Eggs and Ham
There are two main characters: The first is unnamed, the second is named Sam-I-Am, or simply Sam. Throughout the book, Sam tries to encourage the first unnamed character to try green eggs and ham, though he meets with little success. The unnamed character refuses to taste the dish, insisting that he would not like it. Sam then goes through an assortment of locations (house, car, tree, train, box, boat) and dining partners (fox, goat, mouse) trying to persuade the unnamed character to eat.
The conclusion of the tale occurs when the unnamed character, standing in shallow water after a boat sinks, surrounded by various people and beasts, finally gives in and tries the green eggs and ham on the condition that Sam leaves him alone. Upon doing so, he realizes that he does, in fact, like green eggs and ham, and would eat them in all the places and with all the dining partners suggested throughout the book. The story closes with the character thanking Sam-I-am for his persistence.

The Cat in the Hat books genuinely have a witty dialogue and clever rhyme schemes, however this book seems to ring a bell with regards to my memory and sounds like an enjoyable read.
