...when you think about Seuss!" So goes the line from the Seussical (musical by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens that celebrates the works of Dr. Seuss), and we have been singing it for a couple of weeks after we saw our Elle sing her heart out in several chorus parts. Here she is in her cat garb for the final scene being congratulated by a somewhat serious little sister. Horton the Elephant reminded us that he had to save the tiny Whos because "A person's a person, no matter how small" - ever apropos. So few of us have not been touched in some way by the work of Theodore Geisel - his doodling led to a whole world of wild imagination that delights verbally and visually. The only book my brother would take out of the library for about a year was "Green Eggs and Ham" - I think my Mum did eventually tire of reading that one. As a teacher she was an early proponent of Dr. Seuss in schools, sometimes against the wishes of the more staid educational establishment, who disliked the invented lexicon, silly characters and ridiculous rhymes. The world is a better place because of this man's persistence, though his journey was not linear or easy - so, Thank You, Theodore Seuss Geisel!
