Theodor Suess Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendant in Springfield, Massachussets, 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 successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
