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 4.3 out of 5★ by 9reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Lovely Book Ordered, shipped and recieved all in one week before Christmas. Excellent Book! My 3 year old loves it! 01/13/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Who doens't love Dr. Suess? I bought this book to use as part of a church lesson for grown women. By the time the Grinch's heart grows two sizes I was in tears in front of thirty women. It's a great way to remind yourself that Christmas isn't about present and decorations. And even if you can't afford much this Christmas, it will still be Christmas! 12/19/2011
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Pages are warped I bought this with site to store shipping. The pages are all very warped. I'll be returning it. 09/01/2010
Rated 4 out of 5★ by good book for the kids Definitely a cute book and my kids love it! 12/19/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Cover exceeded expectations - great presentation The cover has a shiny red and green foil look that is very classy for Christmas; I was expecting a vivid red-orange as depicted on the website, but this looks much nicer than the picture. I purchased two online; I gave one to a friend(as a tradition we exchange a Christmas book every year), and kept one for our family. It was larger and more beautiful than I was expecting, not to mention the story is a classic! 12/27/2012
