All of the Dr Seuss Books

Updated 2020

Here is the complete list of books published by Theodor Seuss, “Ted” Geisel, an American children’s author, filmmaker, screenwriter, animator, poet, illustrator, and political cartoonist. Commonly known as Dr. Seuss, he is famous for writing some of the most popular children’s books of all time. 

Dr. Seuss has sold over 600 million copies of his books worldwide and has published over 60 books during his lifetime. Many of them resulted in lots of commercial adaptations, including four television series, a Broadway musical, five feature films, and 11 television specials. 

Who Is Dr. Seuss?

Born in Springfield, Missouri, on March 2, 1904, Dr. Seuss, or Ted, as what his family called him, was one of the most celebrated American authors for his work in making children’s books. 

While writing and illustrating his first book, And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, Dr. Seuss worked as a cartoonist in the advertising industry. After being rejected 27 times, he got his big break and got published in 1937. 

Twenty years later, his editor told him to make an alternative to boring and standard fiction books to school kids. That’s when he wrote Cat in The Hat and became an immediate success after publication. 

By his passing at 87 in 1991, Dr. Seuss has established himself as one of the most prolific cartoonists and writers of all time. Some of his books became significant commercial franchises, such as Horton Hears a Who, The Cat in the Hat, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Dr. Seuss Complete Books & Summary

Here is Dr. Seuss’s complete list of works along with a short summary:

1) The Pocket Book of Boners – 1931 

  • Dr Seuss books 1Book Summary: The Pocket Book of Boners is a book illustrated by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss), originally published as four separate books in 1931–32 by The Viking Press. In 1941, Readers’ League of America compiled these four books and published the Pocket Book of Boners. It was one of the bestselling paperback books of World War II, with 1.34 million copies in print by 1945. At the time of its writing, the term “boner” was commonly used to mean a silly mistake, without any sexual connotation.The Pocket Book of Boners contains 22 illustrations of silly mistakes, drawn by Dr. Seuss. The rest of the volume consists of short jokes and humorous observations with most being no more than four lines long, and is notable for its early examples of Dr. Seuss’ illustration style.

2) And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street – 1931 

  • Dr Seuss books 2Book Summary: Dr. Seuss’s very first book for children! From a mere horse and wagon, young Marco concocts a colorful cast of characters, making Mulberry Street the most interesting location in town. Dr. Seuss’s signature rhythmic text, combined with his unmistakable illustrations, will appeal to fans of all ages, who will cheer when our hero proves that a little imagination can go a very long way. (Who wouldn’t cheer when an elephant-pulled sleigh raced by?) Now over seventy-five years old, this story is as timeless as ever. And Marco’s singular kind of optimism is also evident in McElligot’s Pool.

3) The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins – 1938 

  • Dr Seuss books 3Book Summary: Handpicked by Amazon kids’ books editor, Seira Wilson, for Prime Book Box – a children’s subscription that inspires a love of reading.This classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss features a foil cover and color-enhanced illustrations! As topical today as when it was first published in 1938, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is the story of a young peasant (the same as in Bartholomew and the Oobleck—a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. While The 500 Hats is one of Dr. Seuss’s earliest and lesser known works, it is nevertheless totally Seussian and addresses subjects that we know the good doctor was passionate about throughout his life: the abuse of power (as in Yertle the Turtle and Horton Hears a Who); rivalry (as in The Sneetches); and of course, zany good humor (as in The Cat in the Hat and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)!

5) The King’s Stilts – 1939

  • Dr Seuss books 5Book Summary: A seventy-five-year-old King gets new vintage cover art for his anniversary!Celebrate the 75th birthday of Dr. Seuss’s classic treatise on the importance of a balanced life with our Anniversary Edition featuring cover art from the books original publication! A Seussian spin on a conventional fairy tale, The King’s Stilts is as topical today as when it was first published in 1939. It’s the story of a devoted king who works hard and plays hard—and whose entire kingdom is threatened when his beloved stilts are stolen and he is too distraught to do his job. Written in prose instead of rhyme (unlike Seuss’s later works), The King’s Stilts nevertheless addresses subjects that we know Dr. Seuss was passionate about throughout his life: duty (as in Horton Hears a Who and Horton Hatches the Egg); the abuse of power (as in The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins and Yertle the Turtle); deceit (as in The Bippolo Seed and How the Grinch Stole Christmas)–and even cats (as in The Cat in the Hat and I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today)! A perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans with a collectible new edition. Follow the Good Doctor’s advice: After a hard day of work, have fun with a great book like The King’s Stilts!

60) My Many Colored Days – 1996 

  • Book Summary: Accompanying a manuscript Dr. Seuss wrote in 1973, was a letter outlining his hopes of finding “a great color artist who will not be dominated by me.” The late Dr. Seuss saw his original text about feelings and moods as part of the “first book ever to be based on beautiful illustrations and sensational color.” The quest for an artist finally ended—after the manuscript languished for more than two decades—at the paint brushes of husband-and-wife team Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher whose stunning, expressive paintings reveal such striking images as a bright red horse kicking its heels, a cool and quiet green fish, a sad and lonely purple dinosaur, and an angrily howling black wolf. Using a spectrum of vibrant colors and a menagerie of animals, this unique book does for the range of human moods and emotions what Oh, the Places You’ll Go! does for the human life cycle. Here is a wonderful way for parents to talk with children about their feelings. With Johnson and Fancher’s atmospheric, large-scale paintings bursting off the pages, Dr. Seuss’s vision is brought to life. This rare and beautiful book is bound to appeal to both the innocent young and the most sophisticated seniors.

67) The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories – 2011 

  • Book Summary: It’s the literary equivalent of buried treasure! Seuss scholar/collector Charles D. Cohen has hunted down seven rarely seen stories by Dr. Seuss. Originally published in magazines between 1948 and 1959, they include “The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga ” (about a rabbit who is saved from a bear with a single eyelash!); “Gustav the Goldfish” (an early, rhymed version of the Beginner Book A Fish Out of Water);  “Tadd and Todd” (a tale passed down via photocopy to generations of twins); “Steak for Supper” (about fantastic creatures who follow a boy home in anticipation of a steak dinner); “The Bippolo Seed” (in which a scheming feline leads an innocent duck to make a bad decision); “The Strange Shirt Spot” (the inspiration for the bathtub-ring scene in The Cat in the Hat Comes Back); and “The Great Henry McBride” (about a boy whose far-flung career fantasies are only bested by those of the real Dr. Seuss himself).In an introduction to the collection, Cohen traces the history of these stories, which demonstrate an intentional and significant change that led to the writing style we associate with Dr. Seuss today.  Cohen also explores these stories’ themes that recur in better-known Seuss stories (like the importance of the imagination, or the perils of greed).  With a color palette that has been enhanced beyond the limitations of the original magazines in which they appeared, this is a collection of stories that no Seuss fan (whether scholar or second-grader) will want to miss!

Young readers will find themselves delightfully transported by the engaging equines as they learn about the creative process and how to see art in new ways.Taking inspiration from Dr. Seuss’s original sketches, acclaimed illustrator Andrew Joyner has created a look that is both subtly Seussian and wholly his own. His whimsical illustrations are combined throughout with “real-life” art. Cameo appearances by classic Dr. Seuss characters (among them the Cat in the Hat, the Grinch, and Horton the Elephant) make Dr. Seuss’s Horse Museum a playful picture book that is totally unique. Ideal for home or classroom use, it encourages critical thinking and makes a great gift for Seuss fans, artists, and horse lovers of all ages.Publisher’s Notes discuss the discovery of the manuscript and sketches, Dr. Seuss’s interest in understanding modern art, the process of creating the book, and information about each of the artists and art reproductions in the book.
