In the beginning of the book, the Cat in the Hat introduces the reader to Ziggy and Zizzy Zozzfozzle, saying that they both got 100%, but got every answer wrong, and then asks the reader the recurring question "are you smarter than a Zozzfozzle"? The questions in the book start out easy, but then get progressively more difficult, which begins to wear the Cat out.
