The Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss' best-loved creation, features the mischievous feline with a wicked sense of fun who creates havoc and mayhem around the home of two unsuspecting children. How the Grinch Stole Christmas! tells the tale of the grumpy Grinch who plots to steal Christmas from the good citizens of Who-ville, only to discover that he's not as cold-hearted as he thought. Fox in Socks contains some of the funniest and most crazed tongue-twisters ever written, while Green Eggs and Ham, with its vocabulary of only 50 words, proves how hilarious Dr. Seuss can be even with the most limited word usage.

Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, 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.
