Oh! The places he went! Most American children are familiar with the trisyllabic triumphs of Dr. Seuss' illustrated books for children. Many elementary schools even host Dr. Seuss Days to instill in young children the joy of reading and rhyme. Kids read things Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears A Who, and The Butter Battle Book, but what their teachers often don't tell them is that Dr. Seuss turned warmongering propagandist during WWII (and some of his books reflect his political views). If you like Dr. Seuss's traditional illustrations, you'll love his more politically incorrect publications admonishing the American public to abandon their racist viewpoints, shake off their laziness, submit to rationing, buy war bonds, and fight the war against hilariously caricatured evil fascists wholeheartedly.
