Dr. Seuss: The Cat Behind the Hat

Miami University alum Bob Chase is the publisher of a new book that takes readers into the world of one of the most popular authors ever, the magical Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss: The Cat Behind the Hat, was written by Caroline Smith and is a collector’s item for the Seuss and Geisel lovers. As the publisher tells Barbara Gray, Theodore Geisel not only had his beloved children’s books, he was a surrealist painter of a collection now referred to as “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss.” This book includes highlights of those works that Geisel referred to as his Midnight Collection, which he mostly kept to himself to avoid criticism, but wanted released after his death.
