Take a Trip to Seussville

There's no place like Seussville when it comes to learning more about Seuss's books and his background. Plus there are fun activities for those of you who are puttering about online with nothing to do.

All Work and No Play

Too much work and not enough balance? Here are some tips for reducing stress in your everyday life.

Historical Documents

The King's (Rather Pricey) Stilts

Did you know that a first edition copy of The King's Stilts could cost you up to $9000? Hey, we could all go in on one together…

An Interesting Comparison

A 1989 New York Times article on the New York Department of Parks and Recreation's Dawn Patrol likened the members to King Birtram's Cat Patrol. We suppose that finding dead whales and medical waste is a little bit like protecting an imaginary kingdom from Nizzards (we guess).

Spell in Seussian

Even though King Birtram and his stilts aren't included, this Dr. Seuss-inspired alphabet is a whole lot of fun to look at!

Cold Off the Presses

The first edition of The King's Stilts is pricey, but lovely.

Slap a Stamp on It

We wish they still had these 2004 stamps around. They're much more fun than the Forever Stamps we've got these days. No offense, Liberty Bell.

The Good Doctor

The man himself. He almost looks like one of his characters, doesn't he?
