About the author

Biography of Seuss, Dr.

Certainly the most popular of all American writers and illustrators of picture books, Geisel made his pseudonym Dr. Seuss famous to several generations of children and their parents. Geisel developed a rhythmic form of poetry that relied on quick rhymes and wordplay reminiscent of Mother Goose rhymes. He combined this with exaggerated cartoon like illustrations of fantasy characters to entice children into stories that contained important messages, often presented with a great deal of irony and satire.

Geisel always embraced the imagination of children and condemned adults' inability to join into it, using the child's view to reveal the flaws in society. His first picture book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street (1937), describes a child's adding more and more imaginative elements to the story that he plans to tell about what he saw on the way home, only to end with the child actually telling the truth: he saw only a very uninteresting horse and cart.

The Cat in the Hat (1957), written as a beginning reader, portrays two children having a magical afternoon with a strange cat while their mother is away, complete with a frantic cleanup before their mother can find out what they have done. This is probably his most famous work. Geisel's later books took on social questions more directly. The Butter-Battle Book (1984) condemned the cold war, and it is often removed from children's sections of libraries for political reasons.

Likewise, The Lorax (1971), which condemned the destruction of the ecology, has also been banned. Altogether, Geisel wrote and illustrated 47 books, which have sold more than 100 million copies in 18 languages. In 1984 he received a Pulitzer Prize for his contributions to children's literature. More than a dozen of his books are still in print. His title The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories made Publisher's Weekly Best Seller List for 2011. In 2012 his work The Cat in The Hat made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Rated 4.2 out of 5★ by 22reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Perfect Compact Size & Story After reading some reviews about how small it was, I almost didn't purchase it! They did bring to my attention the size, which I hadn't previously noticed. I considered the price, size and that it is a pop-up... so glad I bought it!! Much better than the 64 page version, my little boy would never sit through that. Plus, with the cute pop-ups, you can't beat this value!! The book was actually bigger than I had pictured from the reviews, and the story line is so cute! Will buy again for other little ones on their birthday! Give this book a chance, what do you have to lose? Free site-to-store shipping and no hassle returns in store!*I've attached pictures of the inside* 10/01/2010
Rated 1 out of 5★ by No I ordered this from site to store. It was suppose to be a gift for my nephew. I opened the box at the site to store counter and immediately was disappointed at the size. It is very small, minature. So I took it straight to the returns counter. I think I would have been much happier with the full size version but I didn't have the time to reorder before his birthday.The story is very cute though. 01/28/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Cute pop-up book! I ordered this book for my son's 1st birthday. (Free shipping site to store was great!) It's a cute pop-up book with colorful pictures and classic Dr. Seuss rhymes. The small size of this book (about 4.5" wide X 6" tall) and shorter version of the original is perfect for any baby or toddler! My son seemed to like this book. 10/01/2011
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Cute book One of my students brought in the larger book to class and I thought it was so cute. I decided to buy this one for my boyfriend's daughters birthday. It is a small book, but the pop ups and message make up for it. We used it as the "card" for her present. Perfect keepsake!! 04/03/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This book was a Surprise! I did not realize that this was a pop-up type of book. I was pleasantly surprised. It is fun to read(like all Suess books are) and makes a perfect gift for the 6-9 age group. A good value. 03/26/2010
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Great book, packaged for different age group Although the Dr. Suess book is fantastic, the book itself is definitely not created in size for those in the 3-5 yr old age group. The book is very small.I purchased it for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday and wonder how long it will last. The fact that it was on sale for just 2.99 made it a steal just the same. I would have been really upset had a paid the full $8 original priceIt measures about 4 1/2" X 6" which seems like a great size for a little one but it renders it small enough to be tossed around like a toy instead of handled carefully like a traditional size book. 03/27/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Cute Seuss Very cure Dr. Seuss pop up book. Would have liked a blank page for an inscription, but overall a great little book. 11/07/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Do not recommend Very small book for the price. 11/24/2013
