Hey Wombats:

Green Eggs and Ham was reportedly banned by Mao's government
<https://www.nypl.org/blog/2013/09/24/banned-books-week-green-eggs-and-ham>
because  of its "portrayal of early Marxism."  The source provides no
further details.

I've "done the Google," searched databases, checked reference books,
nothin.' I cannot find out a) if this is true or b) what in the book struck
Chinese censors as "a portrayal of early Marxism."

Thanks in advance for any leads...

Kevin
