Product Information

'Dr. Seuss ignites a child's imagination with his mischevious characters and zany verses.' The Express "Classic timeless appeal, presented in a new toddler friendly format" Junior "[Dr.Seuss] has...instilled a lifelong love of books, learning and reading [in children]" The Telegraph "You really can't go wrong with Dr.Seuss" BBC Parenting "The magic of Dr.Seuss, with hilarious rhymes, belongs on the family bookshelf" Sunday Times Magazine "It's hard to believe they've been going for a century, Dr. Seuss' magic is timeless" Father's Quarterly

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.
