Dartmouth has your back for all questions Seuss in nature. This digital dictionary even comes alphabetical.

In the Know

This is an interview with Dr. Seuss's widow Audrey Geisel, and she gives us the down and dirty on the doctor. To be fair, there's no down and even less dirty.

Thanks, Paul Wing

Whoever you are, Paul Wing, you gave us a pretty good reading of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.



Don't let your child's bookshelf be without this wonderful cover art. Oh, and the book too.

Old School, Yo

A comparison between the old and new covers. Note the avant-garde deconstruction of the phenomenological… ah, we're just messing with you. Still, we like them both.

Who's self?

Seuss self. Dr. Seuss himself.


Dr. Seuss stamped onto his very own U.S. stamp, putting him on the same level as presidents and pretty sunsets.

Woot Seuss!

This bit of tribute art features an excellent rendition of Bartholomew Cubbins. Seriously awesome.
