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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 9reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by BOARD BOOKS I bought these for my granddaughter' s second birthday, and believe they will be perfect for her. Keep in mind that they are quite small, but that makes them perfect for little hands. A young child can easily handle these because they are so small, and the heavy cardboard pages won't tear lIke paper. Note that these are perfect for a two-year old to read by herself, but parents will probably prefer a regular book when reading to their children. Don't let that stop you from buying this item because little ones love to have books they can read by themselves (and parents don't have to worry about all the pages being torn out). I would definitely recommend this item. 03/12/2014

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for toddlers Great for 18months and up. My 2 1/2 y/o can easily memorize the rhymes with these Dr. Seuss books. Also a bargain getting this 4-pk than buying them individually at Ross/Marshall's. 09/15/2013

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Kids love them My kids absolutely loves these tongue-twisting worded books. This box set came with 4 books. They are very colorful and you can easily read all four in one sitting if you can keep from stumbling over your words; which I believe is the fun part for the kids. 04/06/2014
