Test Your Dr. Seuss Knowledge

Posted by Shmoop on 2/28/19 10:45 AM

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? Did you know his birthday is this weekend, March 2nd? Do you even know this guy at all

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

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...
