Product description

From Booklist

His pen name suggests something essential about Geisel. Seuss in "American" sounds like suss, German for sweet, and there is nothing in all cartooning sweeter than the style of Dr. Seuss. Bitterness and meanness have no part in it, even in the handful of early-1940s political cartoons in this sampler of work predating his unparalleled success as a children's writer. Besides those cartoons, done for the famous radical New York newspaper PM, the selection includes advertising work for a suburban newspaper chain, a pen company, a building materials firm, and an auto-accessories business; illustrated features for the magazines Judge and Liberty; illustrations for a book of schoolchildren's bloopers (e.g., "Polonius was a mythical sausage"); and a malaria-prevention pamphlet aimed at World War II servicemen. Everything delightfully attests that Geisel developed early the wonderfully athletic, loopy line (reminiscent of the physical comedy of Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd) and the benignly goofy humor (greatly inspired by his cartoonist forebear, Rube Goldberg) that stood him in good stead throughout his long career.

Review

Everything delightfully attests that Geisel developed early the wonderfully athletic, loopy line (reminiscent of the physical comedy of Chaplin, Keaton, and Lloyd) and the benignly goofy humor (greatly inspired by his cartoonist forebear, Rube Goldberg) that stood him in good stead throughout his long career. Ray Olson --Booklist

All that said, childhood fans, American history buffs, and parents who read nightly the escapades of certain primary-coloured fish, cats in hats and Sam s unusual breakfast choices will love this round-up of the earliest and perhaps the best of one of the greatest creative illustrators of our time. Nora Mohony --Compulsive Reader

This book is a treat, particularly for anyone who either grew up with Dr. Seuss books or shared them with their own children. The clear signs of genius -- and a crazy sense of humor -- are all linked together by Geisel's unmistakable visual style. I really enjoyed seeing how this beloved figure got his start. Tom Knapp --Rambles
