Dr. Seuss

By Melissa King

Intro | The Name | Making A Living | The Cat | More Than Kids

I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam I Am.

Here I am, 26 years old, and I still find myself getting excited over a copy of The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham .  Most of you are probably smiling right now too, remembering one of your favorite childhood books. Have you ever wondered about the mystery man behind these famous titles? Most of us picture a funny-looking cat in a hat when we think of him, but he actually was a real-life person and he has made one of the most significant contributions in history to children's literature. Theodor Seuss Geisel is his name, a man born 100 years ago on March 2nd in Springfield , MA a man we have all come to know and love by the name of Dr. Seuss.

Besides children's books, Ted Geisel was a student at Oxford University , served in World War II, had a career in advertising, and though he kept it private, he was quite the artist. He's also the recipient of many awards, from Oscars and Emmys to honorary doctorates and a Pulitzer Prize.
