Seuss at War

Today is the birthday of Dr. Seuss,
An author who had a few wizurzles loose.
He wrote about cats and hats and sneeches and thneads,
But tonight I want to mention a lesser-known deed.

Seuss was drafted in the Second World War, 
Owing to his pen being mightier than the sword. 
He schtimpled cartoons to help the war go,
Some of which you can check out below:

I enjoyed a grown-up view of the good doctor. Well, as much as you can enjoy a glimpse of WWII.

i don't think I've ever seen a picture of Dr. Seuss before, but that first sketch is exactly how I pictured him.
