The King's Stilts is Dr. Seuss's third book, published in 1939. It is the first to feature species of his own design, namely Nizzards and dike trees. Like its predecessor, this book is written in prose, as opposed to the trademark Seuss poetry style.It covers ideas of hard work and diligence, teamwork, and dedication.

Oceanhouse Media published this book to be used as an app on Iphones, Ipod touch, Ipad and android apps.

The King, on his stilts:

Out came the stilts, up leapt the King. High in the air, his royal robes streaming, he'd race through the marble halls, out across the terrace, up and down the garden stairs.
