Schiffrin, Andre
Dedicated readers and fans of Theodor Seuss Geisel, or Dr. Seuss, know of Seuss's fascinating, long-forgotten career as a political cartoonist for the New York daily newspaper PM during World War II. Dr. Seuss, however, was only one of a number of distinguished cartoonists whose work appeared in PM. In Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War, we discover an astonishing treasure trove of over three hundred incisive political cartoons by Seuss as well as a cohort of other legendary cartoonists of the time, including Saul Steinberg, Al Hirschfeld, Arthur Szyk, Carl Rose, and Mischa Richter. These fascinating cartoons offer a totally different picture of the war, both at home and abroad. Sure to fascinate and surprise readers across the generations, Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War lets readers "time travel to a remarkable time when editorial cartoons really mattered" (America in WWII).

Geisel, Audrey
These fabulous, whimsical paintings, created for his own pleasure and never shown to the public, show Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) in a whole new light. Depicting outlandish creatures in otherworldly settings, the paintings use a dazzling rainbow of hues not seen in the primary-color palette of his books for children, and exhibit a sophisticated and often quite unrestrained side of the artist. 65 color illustrations.

Cohen, Charles
Theodor Seuss Geisel, creator of Horton the Elephant, the Grinch, the Cat in the Hat, and a madcap menagerie of the best-loved children s characters of all time, stands alone as the preeminent figure of children s literature. But Geisel was a private man who was happier at the drawing table than he was across from any reporter or would-be biographer. Under the thoughtful scrutiny of Charles D. Cohen, Geisel s lesser known works yield valuable insights into the imaginative and creative processes of one of the 20th century s most original thinkers."
