Review: I was approached by Penguin Random house to read and to review Brian Jay Jones' story on the man who became known as Dr. Seuss. I give this novel a strong 4/5 stars. Normally, I don't read non-fiction, but I gave it a try this time. I wasn't disappointed. How the man, Theodor Geisel, became known as the American classic as Dr. Seuss and how his more radical side help created the stories we know today. The writing on his life was quite interesting. I had no idea that Theodor Geisel was a political cartoonist and an advertiser. He was a writer that took pride in his work and also gave a good product. If you like non-fiction/biographical novels and/or like Dr. Seuss, I would strongly recommend this novel. Knowing who/where these stories come from is quite fascinating. Also, it'll make you appreciate the stories that we read and heard as children.
