1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduces the life of renowned children's author and illustrator Ted Geisel, popularly known as Dr. Seuss, focusing on his childhood and youth in Springfield, Massachusetts. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904, Theodor Seuss Geisel (better known under his pseudonym "Dr. Seuss") was probably the best-loved and best-selling children's book writer of all time. Returning from Europe by boat in 1936, Seuss amused himself by writing a nonsense poem to the rhythm of the ship's engine. Later, he illustrated the rhyme and in 1937 published the result as And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, his first children's book. However, it was The Cat in the Hat that really established his reputation and revolutionized the world of children's book publishing. That book's enthusiastic reception led Seuss to found Beginner Books, a publishing company specializing in easy-to-read books for children. In 1960 Random House acquired the company and made Seuss president of the Beginner Books division. Seuss died of cancer on September 24, 1991, in La Jolla, California. In the tradition of the series this biography focuses on the childhood of this incredible writer and artist
