The Butter Battle Book
Fight For Dominance
An example of exaggeration in the book is that the characters are fighting over the way that the other side butters their bread. This is used by Dr. Seuss to show that he believed the reasons for the cold war weren't big enough reasons to fight.
The Butter Battle Book, The Cold War, and Satire
In reference to the Big-Boy Boomeroo "a gadget that's Newer than New / It is filled with mysterious Moo-Lacka-Moo / and can blow all those Zooks clear to Sala-ma-goo"
United States Military
Soviet Union Military
The Bitsy Big-Boy Boomeroo
The Berlin Wall (Built during The Cold War)
Grandpa Yook uses the tactic of containment (used by the United States)
"In those days, of course,
the Wall wasn't so high
and I could look any Zook
square in the eye.
If he dared to come close
I could give him a twitch."
The Utterly Sputters is similar to poison/chemical agents used by the United States and the Soviet Union
The Bitsy Big-Boy Boomero represents the nuclear bomb used by the United States
The United States and the Soviet Union began as allies during World War II; sometime after the war though, problems began to arise. Both groups had completely different beliefs and ideals which is what drove them apart. Both nations were constantly fighting for control using any means necessary to attain what they wanted.
