Test Your Dr. Seuss Knowledge

Hey, Shmoopers!

You’ve purchased twenty-seven copies of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! to give as graduation gifts…but when’s the last time you actually read a book by Dr. Seuss? Yeah, that’s what we thought.

As you look back on your high school career (or look forward to whatever’s left of it), why not go on a nostalgic road trip through Seussville? As it turns out, there’s more to Dr. Seussthan meets the eye.

Intrigued?

That’s just the beginning. Seuss wrote about everything from communist cats to nuclear goo—and he even threw a little semiotics in there. Because why not?

Check out all of the Seuss we’ve Shmooped. You’ll be serenaded by our rhymes, enlightened by our analysis, and blown away by what was really going on in Seuss’s kooky brain.

You’ll never think of cats or hats the same way again…
