Dr. Seuss

Born Theodor Seuss Geisel in 1901, Dr. Seuss may not have been a 'real' doctor (he used the prefix to appease his father, who wanted him to go into medicine) but thanks to the timeless success of the likes of The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, he is established as one of the top children's authors of all time. Widely credited with inventing the word 'nerd', Dr. Seuss was not a fan of children and claimed to have based the character of The Grinch partly on himself. He died in 1991, having published more than 40 books and sold half a billion copies in his lifetime.

    Dr. Seuss wrote The Cat in the Hat in response to a plea to make first reading books for young children more entertaining and appealing to read. The madcap illustrations and wild exuberance of The Cat in the Hat verses certainly fit the brief, and this picture book version of the rhyming classic introduces the craziness to an even younger audience from 3+. If your youngster loves Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are, then they will relish the silly madness of The Cat in the Hat.
