The Story Behind the Seuss

Or at least ten of the stories, anyway.

The good people at mental_floss collected the stories behind ten Dr Seuss classics, including such tidbits as Yertle the Turtle is totally Hitler, and The Butter Battle Book was pulled from library shelves because it was too similar to the then-ongoing Cold War. Pretty keen.

Thanks to 100 Scope Notes for the link.
