Overview

Ted Geisel loved to doodle from the time he was a kid. He had an offbeat, fun-loving personality. He often threw dinner parties where guests wore outrageous hats! And he donned quirky hats when thinking up ideas for books- like his classic The Cat in the Hat. This biography, with black-and-white illustrations throughout, brings an amazingly gifted author/illustrator to life.

After reading nearly a fourth of the series i thought that the dr. Suess biodgraphy gets the ribbon for "most interesting". It was great how the author put the little storylines to each book he wrote, and nancy harrison, my all time FAVORITE illustrator, just makes the icing on the cake with the devine pictures and, of course, the cover!(she does all of the covers for the biography series) even though that the jim henson biography was my favorite, this one makes you want to dig up your old suess books and start reading them over and over and over again. ~Danielle

Great book! I purchased this for my second grader, and it is a good read. I never knew Dr. Suess' real name or any history about him during his childhood, or what his self esteem was like until I read this book. I highly recommend this for any person of any age.

Dr. Suess is a known racist who participated in racial shows and political cartoons. His books have white supremacy propaganda which without knowing his true self can slip through the cracks from the friendly language and pretty pictures. Knowing his true racist and white nationalism background would make any educator throw up. Stop glorifying this white racist because he could rhyme.

Who Was Dr. Seuss? by Janet B. Pascal is an excellent story that answered so many questions I had about the man and then some! How did he get his name? Why did he write kid books? What got him started with the silliness? It is explained so well in this book. Why the DR.? Great book, loved it and love/loved Dr. Seuss!
