Not in the dark. Not on a train.
Not in a car. Not in a tree.
I don’t not like them Sam you see.
Not in a house. Not in a box.
Not with a mouse. Not with a fox.
I will not eat them here or there
I do not like them anywhere!"

-Fox in Socks, pg 21 "That can't be my story. That's only a start
I'll say that a zebra was pulling that cart!
And that is a story that no one can beat,

McFuzz Rhythm rhythm-arrangement of spoken words alternating stressed and unstressed elements Dr. Seuss used rhythm in his stories and poems to create a song-like flow which eases reading and increases interest. "STOP it! STOP it! That's ENOUGH sir!
I CAN'T say such SILLY stuff sir.
- Fox in Socks, pg 48 "WET foot dry foot, high foot LOW foot.
Front feet BACK feet, red feet BLACK feet."
-The Foot Book "This was NO time for play, this was NO time for fun.
This was NO time for games, there was WORK to be done."
- The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, pg 3 "All the LONG way to school,
and ALL the way back.
I've LOOKED and I've LOOKED,
and I've KEPT careful track.
But all that I'VE noticed,
EXCEPT my own feet
was a HORSE and a WAGON
on MULberry street."
- And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry Street. "TURTLES! MORE turtles! He BELLOWED and BRAYED
and the turtles 'WAY down in the pond WERE afraid
They trembled. They SHOOK. But THEY came. They OBEYED.
From all OVER the pond they came SWIMMING by the dozens
Whole families of turtles, with UNCLES and COUSINS.
And all of them stepped on the HEAD of poor Mack
one AFTER another they CLIMBED up the stack."
-Yertle the Turtle "She SNATCHED at those berries that GREW on that vine
She GOBBLED them down, four five six seven eight NINE!
And she DIDN'T stop eating, YOUNG Gertrude McFuzz,
till she'd eaten THREE DOZEN! Thats ALL that there was."
- Gertrude McFuzz "Then he'll LAND in a fish bowl
HE'LL manage just fine.
Don't ASK how he'll manage
thats HIS job not mine."
-If I Ran the Circus "AFTER all, Mr Sneedlock is ONE of my friends.
He might even help OUT doing small ODDS and ends
doing little ODD jobs, he could BE of some aid...
such as selling BALLOONs and pink LEMONADE."
-If I Ran the Circus Reviews of Dr. Seuss A HatFul of Seuss states "Dr. Seuss wrote with a special rhythm called “trisyllabic meter,” which means that every third syllable of his stories is more stressed than the others." While actually reading through his books, I didnt hear the meter they heard. I found a different rhythm with a better flow and song-like quality. Literary devices
used by Dr. Seuss Diction
Imagery Diction- specific word choice "the Circus McGurkus! Collossal! Stupendous!
Astounding! Fantastic! Terrific! Tremendous!"
-If I Ran the Circus "A big red wood box
it was shut with a hook."
-The Cat in the Hat, pg 29 Imagery- words used to describe a scene or something happening in a poem or story "Who can stand on one whisker,
the wonderful Bolf.
On the top of five balls,
two tennis, three golf"
-If I Ran the Circus "And he sat all that night
through a terrible storm
if poured and it lightninged!
it thundered! it rumbled!"
-Horton Hatched an Egg Although there was several examples of diction, Dr. Seuss's emphasis was not on words, but on how they flowed and sounded together, like in rhyme or rhythm. Although there are many imagery words throughout his books, he has plenty of pictures and illustrations so the use of imagery isnt necessary. shelfari.com mandarinbooks.cn boxfont.com "Dr. Seuss is probably the one common denominator of American culture."
-Anita Silvey, Children's books expert. "Seuss' books are so insidiously enjoyable because they celebrate the subversive, insoucaint delight--and dangers--of going too far. the rhymes and pictures start off quietly, then everything on the page gradually whirls out of control."
-Michael Dirda, book critic for the Washington Post "...took words and juggled them, twirled them, bounced them off the page. No matter what the story in his books, the message was clear and unwavering."
- Anna Quindlen, columinst for Newsweek "modern Mother Goose"
-The New York Times "My problem with Seuss (rest his soul) can be summed up in this sentence:
That mind of yours, I heard him say, Is frightfully ga-fluppted. Your mind is murky-mooshy!"
-Jennifer Graham, NRO Contributor "Seuss Theodor Geisel in reality was a failed novelist, and we failed novelists are a bitter lot. Geisel's first book, To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, was rejected 43 times (by some pretty smart editors, I would say) before a friend took pity on him and published it." "probably the best-loved and certainly the best-selling children's book writer of all time,"
-Robert Wilson, New York Times Book Review. "[Seuss]...had a tremendous impact on children's reading habits and the way reading is taught and approached in the school system,"
-Miles Corwin, Los Angeles Times. He used abstract characters to stretch children's imagination to show that anything is possible. Regular, or well-known, animals personified in his stories enabled children to understand the story by being able to relate to the animals they see in real life. A Deserving Honor Dr. Seuss' work was not appreciated by everyone. Some thought it was too abstract and caused children to not think logically about things in life. Negative :( planktonlab.com "[one of] Dartmouth's favorite sons."
- Nathan Bruschi, Dartmouth Alumni Blog "Dr. Seuss's work is a spring board to constructively dicuss political themes with younger people--and older people, too."
- Sam Diener, co-editor of Peacework magazine clker.com Although Dr. Seuss' work did get negative feedback from a small group, his work's undeniable fame proved that it was much more than rhymes, abstract characters, and a catchy verse. Dr. Seuss dramatically changed children's literature forever by reaching where no one else had before and achieving great success through his simple, yet complex, books and rhymes. Geisel married his first wife, Helen Palmer, in 1926. Because they never able to have children,she decided to help by writing and illustrating books for children with Geisel. In 1967, Geisel's wife Helen dies. He soon remarries in 1968 to Audrey Stone Dimond. "Horton Hears A Who" debuted in 2008 in theatres and on DVD.
