I loved this book. He was an incredible and talented man. I really couldn't put it down. I read this book because I wanted to be able to give my young students more information on March 2; Dr. Seuss' birthday. I was not disappointed.

I read this book a few years ago and recently bought it again for my Nook. The Morgans do a wonderful job bringing this very private man's life to the understanding of the public. The first thing I remember about my father is his gift to me on my fifth birthday (having secured through his will that I receive the book at that time), a copy of McElligot's Pool. The book has since been destroyed (through love, not malice) but through his prose and imagination Mr Geisel shaped the rest of my life. The Morgans have made me feel like I got to meet the man who made me feel I got to meet my father. A wonderful, well written, and insightful book.

The book is a great tribute to the life of this great man filled with amusing little known facts and inside details written from the perspective of two people who knew him quite well.

This is a disgrace to the life of Dr. Seuss. It had to be one of the worst books I have ever read. It was very lengthy and the author made it very boring. Dr. Seuss must be turning in his grave.

This book is a must read for teachers, or any lover of Dr. Seuss. It not only covers his inspiration for writing, but his life as well. The information would accompany lessons on the author on every grade level, from beginner readers, to High School history students. Everyone loves Dr. Seuss, and this book paints him in the perfect light.
