As an art director in the 1970s, Cathy Goldsmith worked with Dr. Seuss. She tells NPR’s Lauren Migaki how the writer would come into the office to introduce his new books:
He would gather everybody in a conference room. And first he would read the words to you aloud, and then he would show you the pictures. … It was fabulous ‘cause you would meet that book — not exactly the way a reader would meet it because it hadn’t all been pulled together yet — but you had that sense of discovery.
Though Seuss died in 1991, a new collection of his lesser-known work comes out Tuesday. It’s called Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories.

More than 1,500 new materials from the personal archive of author Theodor Seuss Geisel have been donated by Audrey Geisel to the UC San Diego Library, including a variety of unpublished projects, such as “Cat Ballooning,” “The Pet Shop,” “Bee Watches,” “How Welk Can You Spelk,” “The Clock Book,” and “Arabian Adventures.”

Kyle asked if I’d write a song for his SO, Kelsey, as a gift for her 21st birthday. He said Kelsey is fascinated by the Once-ler from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, so I imagined she was a part of that world for this tune. Happy Birthday, Kelsey!

Hi! I’m KC. I write songs on request. Someone asked me to write a song for a friend obsessed with the Once-ler from The Lorax. So I did. I thought you’d like it.
Thanks for listening. Much love. KC
If you can’t tell, all these sketches were to be for Seuss’ birthday that never went down.
