So, what was Dr.Seuss's last book? Well, technically there are two correct answers. The last book that he made completely by himself, illustrations and everything, was Oh, The Places You'll Go! (1990).This book is a popular choice for high school and college graduates, as it has many parts that apply to graduation. Unfortunately, Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) died less than a year after the release of this book, so he never got to fully enjoy his last book's impact. To date, Dr.Seuss remains one of the most popular authors of all time. HIs book Green Eggs and Ham is one of the five most popular books of all time in the United States.

However, there were a few books made after Dr.Seuss's death. These were mostly based off of unpublished scripts that Dr.Seuss had, or ones that he had simply failed to fully illustrate. They were released to the market in quick succession in the early nineties, until the last one in 1995, called Hooray for Diffendoofer Day!

Thus, in answer to what was Dr.Seuess's last book, it is all opinion.  Whichever one of these books you choose, you can't be considered wrong.

Oh, the places WE go! 7 years ago

The story of 'Oh, the places we go' is a great story. The only dissapointment was the last book he was unable to finish, and some unimpressive hoax did some last minute crap and it became a total success. I say that it wasn't as good as any of the fully written by Dr.Seuss books. Hello? It was a sad little story, and alittle creepy. If there's one thing I know, it's something about a good story.
