Biography - A Short Wiki

The wife of Dr. Seuss, she wrote her own popular titles, including Do You Know What I’m Going To Do Next Saturday? and I Was Kissed by a Seal at the Zoo. She committed suicide in the late 1960s following a long illness.

She remained madly in love with Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) throughout her marriage. In the last years of her illness, she watched her husband fall in love with Audrey Stone Dimond and may have committed suicide partially to allow him to be with her.
