Summary
Yertle's story leads off with his attempt to build a bigger kingdom on the backs of his loyal subjects (literally). King of everything he can see, Yertle orders his turtles to stack up under him to build a towering throne. (He made each turtle stand on another one's back and he piled them all up in a nine-turtle stack.) But a plain little turtle named Mack--stuck at the bottom--decides he's had enough. (I know up on top you are seeing great sights, but down on the bottom we, too, should have rights!)Yertle's story leads off with his attempt to build a bigger kingdom on the backs of his loyal subjects (literally).
