The perfect gift - five of Dr. Seuss' best-loved tales in one attractive book.
The perfect gift - five of Dr. Seuss' best-loved tales in one attractive book. A wonderful gift, featuring five of the hilarious classics that made Dr. Seuss one of the best-loved children's authors: The Cat in the Hat The Cat in the Hat Comes Back Green Eggs and Ham Fox in Socks How the Grinch Stole Christmas With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranking among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.
Theodor Seuss Geisel — better known to millions of his 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 hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
