When he turned 18, he attended at the college of Dartmouth and became the editor in chief of its humor magazines, but when he and his friends were caught drinking in their norm, he was kicked out of the club by stilled contributed to them. He moved shortly after he graduated and will meet his soon to be future wife at Oxford University. The reason he moved to England was because he wanted a job as a professer at the University but later moved back to the US to pursue his dream of being a cartoonist instead. Soon after he arived, he became interested into children’s literature after helping a man to make a book called “Bones”. After that, the second World War has begun. Seuss wasn’t able to enlist to the military since he is to old but he helped the military by making animated training films to help the Treasury Department and the War Production Board.       After the war, the couple bought a old observation tower where Seuss would spend his time making books like If I Ran a Zoo and Horton Hears a Who! Dr Seuss went by many pen names like Theo LeSieg, Rossetta Stone, Theophrastus Seuss, and of course, Dr Seuss. Most of Seuss’ books have a political or social theme to which are extremely complex. Later on, he would make a Cat in a Hat that used 220 vocab words in 1957, and used simple vocab words to make books like Green Eggs and Ham and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Sadly, Seuss died in September 24, 1991, in the age of 87 in a hospital in Jolla, California.
