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.
