Who wrote this garbage
"However, in spite of the clear anti-military sentiment, this is one of the few Dr. Seuss books which unambiguously supports the idea of solving problems with violence."
- REPLY: Yes, it is true. The depiction of General Ghengis Kahn Schmitz and his army of cowards is clearly anti-military, and the protagonist's final determination to use a "big bat" to deal with his troubles and make trouble for them unambiguously supports the idea of solving problems with violence. The book ends with a picture of the protagonist getting ready to clobber the Skrink with his big bat.
- Having said that, I'm not sure the sentence belongs in a wikipedia article--isn't it original research? Goblinshark17 (talk) 02:03, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
The beauty of Seuss is, you can take away whatever lesson you like from it. The lesson is, you can't run from your problems. Sometimes you have to stand pat and be proactive, and if it means kicking a little ass, so be it.--The_Iconoclast (talk) 23:19, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
