About (Profile/Biography):

Dr. Seuss, a well-known Children's Author, was born in Massachusetts. Dr. Seuss was one of the greatest storytellers of the early 20th century, creating memorable children's stories with inventive characters and rhymes. His use of illustrations kept young readers interested and set him apart from other writers of his period. He discovered at a young age that he enjoyed creating rhymes in his drawings and writing. The book was rejected 27 times until "Vanguard Press" released it. When the book was published, readers throughout America enthusiastically embraced it, which encouraged him to write further works. He worked in various occupations over the years, including writing and illustrating short stories, working as a screenwriter for movies, serving as an illustrator for advertising campaigns, and working in the animation department during "World War II."
