Who Was Dr. Seuss? (Who Was...?)by Janet B. Pascal
Synopses & Reviews
Known as the keepers of modern-day fairy tales, The Brothers Grimm are as legendary as their stories. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born in 1780s Germany and were inseparable throughout their childhood. While pursuing their law degrees, the two became fascinated with folktales and folk songs. Together, they researched and published centuries of folklore in their famous early nineteenth-century compilation, Childrens and Household Tales. Thanks to the Brothers Grimm, German folk tales like Rumpelstiltskin,” Little Red Ridinghood,” and Hansel and Gretel" are enjoyed by children everywhere.
Ted Geisel loved to doodle from the time he was a kid. He had an offbeat, fun-loving personality. He often threw dinner parties where guests wore outrageous hats! And he donned quirky hats when thinking up ideas for books-?like his classic The Cat in the Hat. This biography, with black-and-white illustrations throughout, brings an amazingly gifted author/illustrator to life.
