Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, wrote more than 60 children’s books, many of which became must-haves for every kid’s library before his death in 1991. Most recently, fans got to read one more posthumous release: Seven short works originally published in '50s magazines were released as an anthology last fall called "The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories." In honor of the latest Seuss-to-screen adaptation, "The Lorax," hitting theaters this weekend, we've dug up seven fun facts about Seuss that may surprise you.
