Dr Seuss Collection

This collection features all the Dr Seuss book pages and product pages that my enthusiasm for Dr Seuss's creations has driven me to create: Dr Seuss Lensography.

I cannot remember when I had my first Dr Seuss book read to me by my parents as I was too young, but I can remember enjoying Green Eggs and Ham, The Sneetches, Hop On Pop and Horton Hatches The Egg over and over again as a young reader. As well as being great fun and having an amazing visual impact Dr Seuss stories have a message behind them; these things have all gone towards making the popularity of Dr Seuss's world such that there are still vibrant sales of his books and a huge range of products carrying his characters.
