This morning, we’re serving up some green eggs and ham. Or rather Neil Gaiman is. Whenever I think about someone reading Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s book, I can’t help but think back to Jesse Jackson’s classic reading on SNL in 1991. But who knows, maybe 20 years from now, another generation might call to mind this version by the unshaven Gaiman. If the reading whets your appetite a bit, don’t miss our collection of Neil Gaiman’s Free Short Stories, which includes, among other things, audio & video recordings of @neilhimself reading his own stories. We’ve got some more good Dr. Seuss material below.
