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 5 out of 5★ by Excellent Book We bought this book to help our toddlers learn why their grandpa has different "color" days as he is going through cancer treatment. A big help ... they love the book and the colors/pictures. 02/12/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Best Dr. Suess book there is This is an amazing book! I found it several years ago for my oldest daughter. We read this book so often it started falling apart. I ordered 2 more copies recently - one for my 4 year old daughter and one for my 1 year old nephew.The colors are used to help describe feelings. Just amazing. I joy to read! 03/09/2010
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Thought it was a hardcover book not a board book The online description stated it was a hardcover book so I thought it was the full size type book with paper pages. The book I received is actually a board book. Luckily my grandson is only 2 1/2 yrs old so he will still enjoy the board book version, but I was disappointed it was not a paper page style book. The product quality is very good for the price tho if you were wanting a board book. 12/26/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book for all ages! Love love love this book especially that it's a Dr. Seuss book at that!Bought this one to add to the collection of Seuss books I'm creating for my son who just turned 1. By the 3rd day, he was already helping me turn the pages and laughing at certain emotions as I played them out. Great illustrations on everyday feelings that we all go through. Nice way to teach kids on what emotions are and that it's ok to have them....highly recommended. 03/05/2012
