Author's Bio

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - `And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street' - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only `The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
