Seuss on the Loose

Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, made an amazing contribution to children's literature when he decided to write and illustrate books that were both readable and fun. His birthday was March 2nd, and many schools celebrate Read Across America in his honor. Just for fun, and Dr. Seuss was all about fun, here's a little Seuss Trivia. Answers will be posted later this week.

1. How many words did Dr. Seuss use in writing The Cat in the Hat?
2. Name one of Dr. Seuss' rare non-rhyming books.
3. The fox in Fox in Socks tries to interest what character in attempting several tongue-twisters?
4. What is the name of the little boy in To Think that I saw it on Mulberry Street?
5. (This one's a toughie) Dr. Seuss wrote a poem called "The Perfect Gift." What did he recommend as the perfect gift?
6. Name the con man who talks the Sneetches out of their money by removing and attaching stars (upon thars).
7. Dr. Seuss did not illustrate this colorful book, published posthumously.
8. Finish this phrase. "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An ____________'s faithful, one hundred percent."
9. In The Sneetches and other stories, you'll find a story about a woman who named all her children this.
10. How many hats did young Bartholomew Cubbins inadvertently wear?

I'm sure many of these are out there on the Internet somewhere. If you're up for some low-tech fun, dig into a stack of Dr. Seuss books instead.
