February 25, 2004

Dear Reader,


Last night we got a new dog. His name is Felix, and he’s a three-year old German Shepherd. It’s too early to say much about him except that he’s stinky (he’ll be getting a bath this morning), he eats tennis balls, and drools.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, as well as three Academy Awards, Theodor Geisel (best known as Dr. Seuss) authored and illustrated forty-four children’s books. Since his first children’s book in 1936, Dr. Seuss has introduced several generations of kids to the joy of reading. March 2 is his one-hundredth birthday. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!



Dr. Seuss: Characters and Unusual Creatures

http://www.primate.wisc.edu/people/hamel/seuss.html


***


Although this site lacks graphics and animation, it’s a valuable reference. Visit to peruse a list of all of Seuss’ books, followed by an alphabetic list of all his creatures (from Aaron, the alligator to Zummers.) Did you know the word “nerd” dates to 1950 when it first appeared in Dr. Seuss’ “If I Ran the Zoo”? “I’ll sail to Ka-Troo And Bring Back an It-Kutch a Preep and a Proo a Nerkle a Nerd and a Seersucker, too!”



Dr. Seuss National Memorial

****


Geisel was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, which is now home to the Dr. Seuss National Memorial. Best bets are the Geisel biography (All About Dr. Seuss), the tour of the sculpture garden (National Memorial), and Dr. Seuss Art Gallery. Although all the work at the gallery is for sale, you don’t need to buy it to enjoy it. Be sure to view the Secret Art Gallery, which displays art not created for any of his books.



Infoplease: Dr. Seuss

http://www.infoplease.com/spot/seuss1.html

***


“His books were originally considered too outlandish to appeal to children. His first, ‘And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street’ (1937), was reputedly rejected by twenty-eight publishers before it finally found a home at Random House.” Infoplease brings us an excellent one page bio, and related articles from their encyclopedia. Best link is Grinchy Trivia, which compares the 2000 live action movie and the 1966 TV movie with the original “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” book.
