Author(s): Dr. Seuss
This storybook adaptaton of Dr. Seuss's posthumously discovered dramatization ties in with TNT's half-hour TV special. Fully animated by Hanna-Barbera, the Daisy-Head Mayzie characters on TV were inspired by and based on Dr. Seuss's own pencil sketches. The story of how little Mayzie learns that love is more important than fame and fortune makes an endearing morality tale for our time--for all ages. Full color.

Theodore Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
