A Biography about Theodor Geisel and his transformation from a doodler into the beloved Dr. Seuss. Little Ted Geisel always had a sketchpad and pencil in hand. He was a Boy Scout with a penchant for creating zany creatures. He grew up with a love of books and words from his mother, and his inventor father spawned a wildly imaginative and perfectionist side. It's no wonder that these qualities led to the beloved work of Dr. Seuss, the Great Doodler.

Follow his career as an ad man, political cartoonist, creator of forty-five indelible children's books, and Pulitzer Prize winner. Not bad for a lifelong doodler! Includes fun facts and several of Dr. Seuss's original sketches and artwork!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Growing up in Springfield, Massachusetts, young Ted Geisel loved to doodle everywhere he went. He managed to parlay this artistic flair into an epic career in advertising, movie production, and, most notably, as beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Readers will be entertained by stories of a young Seuss meeting President Theodore Roosevelt as a Boy Scout, of his challenges growing up as a German American during WWI, and the way he drew inspiration for a story from the engine noises on his first ocean-liner cruise. Geisel's refusal to give up and his willingness to keep drawing in spite of failures are laudable qualities, and his willingness to tackle big issues such as the environment and nuclear war make him exceptional among children's authors of the day. His personal triumphs and tragedies are narrated alongside some of the most formative historical events of the twentieth century, telling the story of the man behind some of the most recognizable children's literature of an entire generation.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2016 Booklist"
