My Favorite is the Zink (?) that drinks pink ink. It's been a while since I read it though.

Theodor Seuss Geisel was graduated from Dartmouth College in 1925 with an A.B. He then told his father that he had won a fellowship to attend Oxford. His proud papa gave the story to the local papers, whereupon young Theodore admitted that he had made it all up. Chagrined, his dad found the dollars necessary to send his dishonest but inventive son to Lincoln College, Oxford, where Dr. Seuss met his wife-to-be. Maybe he shudda written a book about why lying is not always such a bad thing, in that it can give one an excellent post-graduate education and a wife.

Allus been a Bartholomew Cubbins fan, meself. And I have used a quote from The Cat in the Hat in my e-mail signature: "I always pick up my playthings."

"I always pick up my playthings."

Yes - now I used to do that when I was younger - in bars, at the bus stop, on the commuter train, . . . .

I do adore poor dear Horton, whether hearing Who's or hatching eggs.
"I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant's faithful one hundred percent."
Did you folks know that he wrote 2 adult books? (Dr. Seuss not Horton) The style is the same as his kids books, just the subject changes.
"You're Only Old Once" about visiting a medical center as a senior, very funny and should be required reading for all medical staff.
"The Seven Lady Godiva's" which is wonderfully silly and not pornographic as it sounds even though they do all spend most of the book naked.
