Theodor Geisel became known to the world as Dr. Seuss with this, his first book for children. The book was rejected 27 times before it was finally published in 1937. In fact, it might never have made it to bookshelves at all had Geisel not been walking down the street one day and bumped into an old friend who had just taken a job as a children’s book editor for a publishing house.
