'That Thanksgiving Day in New Jersey, Ted dazzled Helen's nieces, Barbara Palmer and her younger sister, Virginia, who were practicing with stilts. He borrowed them and strode proudly up the front steps, into the dining room and around the table, narrowly avoiding the serving platters. The children were agape; he had learned stilt-walking, he told them, as research for his book.'--Morgan, Judith and Neil, Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel, New York, 1995, page 96.
