The Collectible, Nonsensical Dr. Seuss
The Collectible, Nonsensical Dr. Seuss on AbeBooks: Theodor Geisel (1904-1991) was an American illustrator, poet and author, who rhymed his way into the hearts of adoring children all over the world. But you probably know him by his middle name - Seuss - as in Dr. Seuss. Known for his refusal to be limited by paltry constraints such as real words, Geisel's books overflowed with nonsense and rhythm, great honkings of joy, and an onomatopoeiac clamor that made children chortle. His mind-blowing gift for rhyme and flair for the silly ensures that his books remain cherished by little kids today.
