A Dr. Seuss Book About Sports

Our more active friends over at SportsGrid have the scoop on one project dreamt up by Theodore Geisel that was abandoned before completion: A Dr. Seuss book about sports. The rough draft is currently up for auction.

Seuss ultimately decided against publishing the title because “the negative image of [Pete] flubbing and unable to catch any ball at all will make him look like a schnook.”

Ah… gym class memories.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
