This Sneetch Kills Fascists

The wartime propaganda of Dr. Seuss

Yet Dr. Seuss was there when it counted, learning in public to present the political sympathies he would later dress so adroitly in whimsy. Considered in the scope of his career, it's engaging and wholly unembarrassing apprentice work; considered in terms of the world of the Forties, it's a valuable contribution to a nation desperately in need of cheer. Either way, this book affords the reader the rare glimpse into the closet of a childhood hero that leaves you feeling exhilarated rather than ashamed.
