In the late l970’s, Theodor S. Geisel, (Dr. Seuss, of course,) and I had a long series of correspondence from his home in La Jolla, California.

On galleys to a book wherein I had interviewed him, an error about his birthday was made, later corrected.  Ted wrote the following on his iconic CAT IN THE HAT stationery…something I cherish.

The book was BOOKS ARE BY PEOPLE, one of my earliest professional books subtitled INTERVIEWS WITH 105 AUTHORS AND ILLUSTRATORS OF CHILDREN’S BOOKS.

March 2nd marks Ted’s l08th Birthday!

What an incredible man.
