Dr. Seuss, Creator of Comic Monsters, Enjoys a 70-mile View from His Hilltop Studio
Theodor Geisel takes his nom de plume from his middle name, Seuss. As an illustrator, he is noted for his grotesque insects and dragons. He has written such works as Horton Hatches the Egg and The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. Dr. Seuss is shown illustrating a children’s book to be published next spring.
I couldn’t pass by this fantastic sound bite from the main body of the article:
When I asked Dr. Seuss if he had any children of his own, he answered, “No, I have a slogan: ‘You have ‘em, and I’ll amuse ‘em!’”
Don’t ever change, Doctor.
