“Which Dr. Seuss book used just 220 words?”
The correct answer, according to Don’t Know Much About Anything Else by Kenneth C. Davis is The Cat in the Hat, which was written in response to 1954 reports of poor reading in America.
According to Common Knowledge, the classic Green Eggs and Ham was written using only 47 words that were arranged and re-arranged in different patterns.
