Dr. SEUSSYou're wrong as the deuce
And you shouldn't rejoice
If you're calling him Seuss.
He pronounces it Soice.
Known by the pen name Dr. Seuss, Theodor Seuss Geisel was a multifaceted, multi-talented German-American author, political cartoonist, poet, nimator, book publisher, and artist. Geisel was sure of one thing, that he will never begin to write his stories with a moral in mind, stating that "kids can see a moral coming a mile off." Geisel wrote most of his books in anapestic tetrameter, a poetic meter. Geisel left Oxford without earning his graduate degree to begin his career as an illustrator and cartoonist for Vanity Fair, Life, and various other publications and advertising campaigns. With start of World War II, he left children's literature and turned to political cartoons, drawing over 400 for the daily newspaper, PM, all of which were later published in Dr. Seuss goes to War. After the war, he returned to writing classics like If I Ran the Zoo (1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1955), If I Ran the Circus (1956), The Cat in the Hat (1957), How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957), and Green Eggs and Ham (1960) for children. He won a lot of awards including the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, Academy Award etc. Geisel was reluctant to have his characters marketed in contexts outside of his own books but gradually worked his way through this and permitted creation of several animated cartoons, the first being Horton Hatches the Egg animated at Warner Bros. which included a number of gags not present in the original book.
