Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6A lively, straightforward overview of Theodor Geisel's life and work. Although his successes are detailed, his trials are given equal attention, among them are the many rejections he received from publishers; the death of his first wife; and his battle with cancer. Weidt provides highlights of the author/illustrator's journey through a noted career as well as background information on many of his most significant titles. Maguire's full-page pencil sketches capture the subject's appearance and personality as he transforms from a shy young boy to a confident writer. Sources are attributed to a number of interviews and magazine articles; the book does not include photographs of Geisel or reproductions of his artwork.Cheryl Cufari, N.A.

    Great outline of a great man!!

    If you want a quick two-hour crash course on Dr. Seuss, this is the book for you. This is an easy fun book to read, which is full of Dr. Seuss information. This book is an outline of Dr. Seuss life. It has such facts like: Where he was educated, why is he called ¿Dr. Seuss¿, where he got some of the ideas for some of his books, and much more. This book is great as an introduction to Judith & Neil Morgan biography of Seuss, ¿Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel¿

    Dr. Seuss lives on

    This book is a well rounded biography of the life of Theodor Giesel. The reading is interesting without just giving facts. The reader will learn about his stuggles along with the well known successes of his life. Good book for upper elementary students. The pencil sketches are beautifully done to show different times in the life of Giesel. Although most people know what Giesel looks like it would be nice to include a photograph of him.
