"Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr.Seuss: a story with 49 and one words

The infamous children book author Dr.Seuss wrote ''Green Eggs and Ham" as the result of a bet – he was challenged to write a book using just 50 words.

All but one of the words in the book are monosyllabic: "anywhere" is the only word in Green Eggs and Ham that has more than one syllable.
