A Little Known Fact about…Dr. Seuss

Twenty-seven publishers rejected Dr. Seuss’ first book, And to think I saw It on Mulberry Street, because it was a little too bizarre.

Eventually a publisher took a chance, and the rest is history.

All in all, Dr. Seuss published forty-eight books and sold more than 250 million copies.

Not bad for an author who, when at a loss for a good rhyme, would simply make up a silly new word to fit.
