The books of Dr. Seuss, such as The Cat in the Hat, have been popular for more than 50 years with their combination of zany pictures and rhymes. However, few of us are aware of the “secret art” that Dr Seuss, aka Theodor Geisel, rarely exhibited during his lifetime.
As well as cartoons, the show at the Croydon Clocktower, part of the Museum of Croydon, features prints, poetry, advertisements, magazine cover designs and even “unorthodox taxidermy” sculpture.
There will also be a range of activities for all fans of Dr. Seuss’s literary gymnastics, both young and old, inclusing storytelling sessions and an opportunity to meet the Cat in the Hat! The Croydon Clocktower is in Katharine Street, Croydon, CR9 1ET. Opening hours Monday to Saturday 11am-5pm.
Entrance to most workshops is free but will be ticketed on a first come, first served basis as places are limited. For more information, go to the Croydon Clocktower website.
