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 humourist 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
In 2017 The Cat in the Hat Celebrates is 60th Anniversary, and to this day is still a household name in the world of children's books. It has been adored by generations for decades.
