Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on March 2, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He was an American writer and cartoonist, best known by children and parents as Dr. Seuss. He also wrote about a dozen children's books under the lesser known pen name of Theo. LeSieg. His books have been translated into over 15 languages.
Dr. Seuss's career of writing children's books began with And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street. It was turned down 27 times before being published by Vanguard Press in 1937. His colorful, whimsical characters delight children and adults of all ages. Who isn't familiar with Horton the Elephant, Yertle the Turtle, the Sneetches, the Lorax or the Grinch? Some of the titles Seuss is famous for are The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
Theodor Seuss Geisel died on September 24, 1991, in La Jolla, Ca. Although his pen has been forever silenced, Dr. Seuss will live on through his books and his beloved characters, continuing to teach and inspire future generations of readers.
