Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss!

Dr. Seuss' birthday is March 2! Did you know...

At the time of Theodor Seuss Geisel's death in 1991, his 46 children's books had sold more than 200 million copies, and his last, Oh, the Places You'll Go! (1990), was still on the bestseller lists.

He also worked as a political cartoonist, an advertising illustrator, and a documentary filmmaker.

His first book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street (1937), was rejected by twenty-eight publishers before it finally found a home at Random House.

Random House will be publishing an illustrated picture book from Dr. Seuss on July 28th (see previous blog post).
