Name That Trauma :: Reader Burgen on a Scary Dr. Suess Book

September 19th, 2010 by aunt john · 4 Comments

Hey there Kindertrauma,

I was wondering if you could help me figure out a book that scared me for years.

O.K., all I remember is it was a Dr. Seuss book, the cover was different shades of dark blue.

My cousin used to bring it out to freak me out (gotta love relatives).

I have no idea what it was called but it was something about “Scary.”

I’ve looked everywhere to find this book but nothing.

I figured someone who loved Dr. Seuss as a kid might remember it???

Wish there was more info. to go on.

It’s always bugged me.

Keep up the trauma,

Burgen

UNK SEZ: Burgen, based on your description I think you are looking for “What Was I Scared Of?” by DR. SUESS. It’s blue for sure and has “scared” in the title! Turns out you are not alone with this trauma, we got a traumafession on it once before HERE!

Oh God! NOT THE PANTS WITH NOBODY INSIDE! I’m 34 and that story STILL creeps me out! A pair of men’s pants following around a little boy…. *shudders*

Used to scare the hell out of me, too. This story is usually part of ‘The Sneeches and other Stories’ so that’s why you couldn’t find it.

OMG! you found it UNK! I was so sure no one would know and they would think I was a nutter 🙂 Thank you so much. Now maybe I can look at a D.r Seuss book cover and not cringe.  I looove your site. Nice and twisted..but in a good way ;p
