About the Author Dr Seuss:

Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991), better acknowledged by his pen name, Dr. Seuss, was a well-known American author and cartoonist right acknowledged for his children's books, especially The Cat in the Hat. He additionally wrote under the pen names Theo LeSieg and Rosetta Stone.

Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts. He graduated from Dartmouth College in 1925, where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, the Casque & Gauntlet Society, and wrote for the Dartmouth Jack O'Lantern humor magazine under his own name and the pen name "Seuss." He entered Lincoln College, Oxford, intending to earn a doctorate in literature. At Oxford he met Helen Palmer, married her in 1927, and returned to the United States without earning his doctorate

He started submitting humorous articles and illustrations to Judge (a humor magazine), The Saturday Evening Post, Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. One notable "Technocracy Number" created fun of Technocracy, Inc. and featured satirical rhymes at the cost of Frederick Soddy. He became nationally well-known from his advertisements for Flit, a prevalent insecticide at the time. His slogan, "Easy, Henry, the Flit!" became a common catchphrase. Geisel supported himself and his spouse through the Great Depression by drawing advertising for General Electric, NBC, Standard Oil, and other businesses. He equally wrote and drew a brief lived comic strip called Hejji in 1935.

Even at this early stage, Geisel had started utilizing the pen name "Dr. Seuss". His initial function finalized because "Dr. Seuss" appeared six months into his function for Judge. Seuss was his mother's maiden name; as an immigrant from Germany, she would have pronounced it almost as "zoice", but now it happens to be universally pronounced with an initial s sound and rhyming with "juice". The "Dr." is an acknowledgment of his father's unfulfilled hopes that Seuss would earn a doctorate at Oxford. Geisel equally utilized the pen name Theo LeSieg (Geisel spelled backwards) for books he wrote but others illustrated.

In 1936, while Seuss sailed again to Europe, the rhythm of the ship's machines inspired the poem that became his initially book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. Seuss wrote 3 more children's books before World War II , 2 of that are, atypically for him, in prose.

As World War II started, Dr. Seuss turned to political cartoons, drawing over 400 in 2 years as editorial cartoonist for the left-wing New York City daily newspaper, PM. Dr. Seuss's political cartoons opposed the viciousness of Hitler and Mussolini and were very important of isolationists, many notably Charles Lindbergh, who opposed American entry into the war. Some cartoons depicted Japanese Americans as traitors, 1 of which appeared days before the internments began. Some have taken these cartoons to reflect his own damaging attitude toward the Japanese folks, while others have taken him to be presenting a parody of others' attitudes.

In 1942, Dr. Seuss turned his energies to direct help of the US government's war effort. First, he worked drawing posters for the Treasury Department and the War Production Board. Next, in 1943, he joined the Army and was delivered to Frank Capra's Signal Corps Unit in Hollywood, where he wrote movies for the United States Armed Forces, including "Your Job in Germany," a 1945 propaganda movie about peace in Europe after World War II, "Design for Death," a research of Japanese culture that won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1948, and the Private Snafu series of army training movies. While in the Army, he was granted the Legion of Merit. Dr. Seuss's non-military movies from around this time were equally well-received; Gerald McBoing-Boing won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Animated) in 1951.

Despite his many awards, Dr. Seuss not won the Caldecott Medal nor the Newbery. Three of his titles were selected as Caldecott runners-up (today called Caldecott Honor books): McElligot's Pool (1947), Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), and If I Ran the Zoo (1950).

After the war, Dr. Seuss and his spouse moved to La Jolla, California. Returning to children's books, he wrote what countless consider to be his best functions, including such favorites as If I Ran the Zoo, (1950), Scrambled Eggs Super! (1953), On Beyond Zebra! (1955), If I Ran the Circus (1956), and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957).

At the same time, an significant development happened that influenced much of Seuss's later function. In May 1954, Life magazine published a report on illiteracy among school kids, which concluded that kids were not understanding to read because their books were boring. Accordingly, Seuss's publisher produced up a list of 400 words he felt were significant and asked Dr. Seuss to cut the list to 250 words and write a book utilizing just those words. Nine months later, Seuss, utilizing 220 of the words provided to him, completed The Cat in the Hat. This book was a tour de force—it retained the drawing fashion, verse rhythms, and all of the imaginative energy of Seuss's earlier functions, but as a result of its simplified vocabulary might be read by beginning visitors. In 1960, Bennett Cerf bet Dr. Seuss that he couldn't write an whole book utilizing just fifty words. The outcome was Green Eggs and Ham. The common rumor that Cerf not paid Seuss the has not been proven and is probably untrue. These books accomplished substantial global success and stay popular.

Dr. Seuss went on to write other children's books, both in his fresh simplified-vocabulary way (sold as "Beginner Books") and in his elder, more elaborate design. The Beginner Books were not simple for Seuss, and reportedly he labored for months crafting them.

At different occasions Seuss furthermore wrote books for adults that utilized the same fashion of verse and pictures: The Seven Lady Godivas, Oh, The Places You'll Go!, and his final book You're Just Old When, a satire of hospitals and the geriatric lifestyle.

After a extremely difficult disease, Helen Palmer Geisel committed suicide on October 23, 1967. Seuss married Audrey Stone Diamond on June 21, 1968. Seuss himself died, following years of disease, in La Jolla, California on September 24, 1991.

In 2002 the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden opened in his birthplace of Springfield, Massachusetts; it qualities sculptures of Dr. Seuss and of various of his characters
