About the Author:

Theodor Seuss Giesel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a park superintendant in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humourist 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 Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books, known as Beginnner Books.

From the Back Cover:

'Featuring three tales in one volume, and packed with zany artwork and rolling rhymes, this hilarious storybook will delight young children aged 3 and over.'
