About the Author Dr Seuss:

Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991), better acknowledged by his pen name, Dr. Seuss, was a distinguished American author and cartoonist ideal recognized for his children's books, very The Cat in the Hat. He moreover 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" prepared fun of Technocracy, Inc. and featured satirical rhymes at the cost of Frederick Soddy. He became nationally distinguished from his advertisements for Flit, a normal insecticide at the time. His slogan, "Easy, Henry, the Flit!" became a prevalent catchphrase. Geisel supported himself and his spouse through the Great Depression by drawing advertising for General Electric, NBC, Standard Oil, and other firms. He additionally 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's 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 moreover 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 motors 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 persons, 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 created 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 design, verse rhythms, and all of the imaginative force of Seuss's earlier functions, but as a result of its simplified vocabulary can 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 attained 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 fashion. The Beginner Books were not effortless for Seuss, and reportedly he labored for months crafting them.

At different occasions Seuss moreover wrote books for adults that utilized the same design 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 especially 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 attributes sculptures of Dr. Seuss and of numerous of his characters
