    Who would have thunk that Dr. Seuss did more than children’s books!?

    • And it’s funny how weird it is to read the political cartoons after having grown up with his kid’s books! All the cartoons are super serious political satire about WWII…and all I can think about is the fact that the cartoon characters look like every page of Hop on Pop and Green Eggs and Ham!! 🙂
