How is Dr. Seuss a punk.
I have this project for English and it started out with a writing piece and now we’re doing an actual project about how our person is a punk … The more I did my writing part, the more I got confused about how Dr. Seuss really is a punk …When I say how is he a “punk”, I mean How did he go...
While at Dartmouth, Geisel was caught drinking gin with nine friends in his room, violating national Prohibition laws of the time. As a result, the school insisted that he resign from all extracurricular activities. He began submitting humorous articles and illustrations to Judge, The Saturday Evening Post, Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. One notable “Technocracy Number” made fun of the Technocracy movement and featured satirical rhymes at the expense of Frederick Soddy. Dr. Seuss was a veteran. Geisel’s early political cartoons show a passionate opposition to fascism, and he urged Americans to oppose it, both before and after the entry of the United States into World War II. His cartoons tended to regard the fear of communism as overstated, finding the greater threat in the Dies Committee and those who threatened to cut America’s “life line” to Stalin and Soviet Russia, the ones carrying “our war load”.Geisel’s cartoons also called attention to the early stages of the Holocaust and denounced discrimination in America against African Americans and Jews. Geisel himself experienced anti-semitism: in his college days, he was refused entry into certain circles because of a misperception that he was Jewish (he was in fact a practicing Lutheran).However, Geisel supported the Japanese American internment during World War II. His treatment of the Japanese and of Japanese Americans, whom he often failed to differentiate between, has struck many readers as a moral blind spot. On the issue of the Japanese, he is quoted as saying:But right now, when the Japs are planting their hatchets in our skulls, it seems like a hell of a time for us to smile and warble: “Brothers!” It is a rather flabby battle cry. If we want to win, we’ve got to kill Japs, whether it depresses John Haynes Holmes or not. We can get palsy-walsy afterward with those that are left.—Theodor Geisel, quoted in Dr. Seuss Goes to War, by Dr. Richard H. MinearCartoon of John Haynes Holmes. By Dr.SeussAfter the war, though, Geisel was able to end his feelings of animosity, using his book Horton Hears a Who (1954) as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of Japan, as well as dedicating the book to a Japanese friend.In 1948, after living and working in Hollywood for years, Geisel moved to La Jolla, California. It is said that when he went to register to vote in La Jolla, some Republican friends called him over to where they were registering voters, but Geisel said, “You, my friends, are over there, but I am going over here [to the Democratic registration].”In his booksThough Geisel made a point of not beginning the writing of his stories with a moral in mind, stating that “kids can see a moral coming a mile off”, he was not against writing about issues; he said “there’s an inherent moral in any story” and remarked that he was “subversive as hell”.Many of Geisel’s books are thought to express his views on a myriad of social and political issues: The Lorax (1971), about environmentalism and anti-consumerism; The Sneetches (1961), about racial equality; The Butter Battle Book (1984), about the arms race; Yertle the Turtle (1958), about anti-fascism and anti-authoritarianism; How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957), about anti-materialism; and Horton Hears a Who! (1954), about anti-isolationism and internationalism. Shortly before the end of the 1972–1974 Watergate scandal, in which United States president Richard Nixon resigned, Geisel converted one of his famous children’s books into a polemic. “Richard M. Nixon, Will You Please Go Now!” was published in major newspapers through the column of his friend Art Buchwald.Although Geisel never made any explicit or implicit mention of the abortion debate in his books, the line “A person’s a person, no matter how small!!” from Horton Hears a Who! has grown, over the objections of his widow, into widespread use on the pro-life side of the issue.
i need to know how much money my old Dr Seuss’s books are worth.
Published in 1960 or later, probably anywhere from fifty cents to two dollars each, in mint condition.If you have first editions from the fifties, they might be worth more. By the 60s he was hugely popular and so many were printed, and survive, that they’re not hard to come by.

How many Cat in the Hat books have been written.
I only remember two from my childhood. Were there any more?
There are only 2 actual books by Dr. Seuss about the Cat in the Hat; they have been translated into many languages, ut there are still only 2. There are however many early reader books that are still being published that are being written by other authors using the same style.
How many words does a publishable book need to have.
I’m writing a fantasy-romance, and I want to know about how big I should make it.So how many words for a book 200-300 pages need? 400-500? 600?Thank you…
Usually no publishers will take a book less than 50,000 words, however, there are a few exceptions out there.Personally, if you’re still writing it, you should NOT be focusing on the length of your book. Every good writer knows that if you focus on writing for a deadline or to meet a set number of words, pages, etc. that your writing won’t be nearly as good. Focus on the content inside your writing and making it as detailed as possible. If you’re confident in the strength of your writing, the length will come naturally.Why are you stressing over how many pages it needs to be, anyways? After all, if you want your book published, it all depends on if it’s paperback or hardcover. Hardcover books have fewer pages than paperback books because the size of each page is bigger, and therefore can fit more words.(P.S. – A good book is NEVER under sixty thousand words. Just an FYI. If you aren’t Dr. Seuss and you aren’t Stephenie Meyer, you better make it pretty drawn out, because those are the only two people that can get away with having short books.)
This week is Dr. Seuss week. ANd I need help with these Dr.; Seuss problems. You don’t need to answer all of them.1. In what year was How The Grinch Stole Christmas?2. How many different words did Dr.Seuss use in Cat in the Hat?3.Who is Sam-I-Am trying to convince to eat green eggs and ham?4. In…

How many words are in a childrens picture book.
How many words per page lets say are in a childrens picture book (50, 25, 80, 100?)
I depends on the type of picture book. Most of the picture books published now have 32-pages (books printed earlier, like Dr. Seuss books, are much longer).Word length for fiction is up to 1500 words, with 1000 words as the average.Nonfiction in the picture book format can go up to age 10, 48 pages in length, or up to about 2000 words of text.Easy readers (or “easy-to-read”) can be 32-64 pages long, with 200-1500 words of text, occasionally going up to 2000 words. Books average 2-5 sentences per page.I have submitted manuscripts (although I’ve never had a book published), so I suggest that if you are writing a book for children, please check the publishers website for the Writer’s Guidelines or Submission Guidelines for exact requirements. The publisher’s love it when you do your homework first!Hope this helps.

(1986)With millions of books in print, and nearly all of his 50-plus titles still available for sale, Dr. Seuss was, up until his untimely death in 1991, by far one of the most prolific living writers in the world. In fact, his GREEN EGGS AND HAM is the third largest selling book in the English language.Born Theodor Geisel in 1904, Dr. Seuss has lent his talent to advertising campaigns of the 1940s, political cartoons for PM, and a 1935 comic strip for Hearst publications called HEJJI, about a young lad’s travels through the mythical land of Baako.Commendations awarded to Seuss include an Academy Award for best documentary short subject of 1945 for his writing and production of the propaganda piece YOUR JOB IN GERMANY (aka HITLER LIVES). He also wrote (but did not create) GERALD McBOING-BOING, a 1951 Oscar-winning cartoon. Seuss was awarded an honorary Pulitzer Prize in 1984 citing his half-century contribution to “the education and enjoyment of America’s children and their parents.I have given you two lists to compare. Hope this helps. Good luck…..
