Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the 1965 book, Fox in Socks.
For fifty years the flyleaf of Fox in Socks—Dr. Seuss’s 1965 charmer—has warned: “Take it slowly. This Book is Dangerous!” This wonderfully colorful Seussian tongue-twister was designed to help children get their mouths around language. That it certainly did!
From Random House’s “I Can Read It All By Myself Beginner Books Series,” Ted’s story features two main characters, an anthropomorphic “Fox” and “Knox,” who speak almost entirely in densely rhyming tongue-twisters. After introducing Fox and Knox, as well as props, box and socks, Dr. Seuss takes these four rhyming items through several permutations, adding more items as he goes along. This prompts Knox to complain every so often about the difficulty of the tongue-twisters.

Art Brokerage: Dr. Seuss aka Theodor Geisel American Artist: b. 1904-1991. Theodor Seuss Geisel a.k.a Dr.Seuss, requires little introduction. He began his career as an editorial cartoonist in the 1920's and in the years that followed he delivered 44 children's books, over 400 World War II political cartoons, hundreds of advertisements and countless editorials filled with wonderfully inventive animals, characters and Seussian humor. While everyone may be familiar with Seuss book illustrations most of the public are unaware that Seuss was a visual artist who painted and sculpted for his own enjoyment. Secret Art and Unorthodox Taxidermy and bronze editions. Theodor Geisel (1904-1991), aka Doctor Seuss artwork is one of the most sought after collections today. UNORTHODOX TAXIDERMY was a collaborative effort between the artist and his first publisher to sell a collection of fantastical creatures created by Dr Seuss. Hailed by LOOK Magazine in 1938 as "The world's most eminent authority on unheard-of animals." These early works have been painstakingly recreated and offered by the estate as limited editions. For over 60 years, Dr. Seuss's illustrations brought a visual realization to his fantastic and imaginary worlds. His Secret Art works the paintings and sculptures he did at night for himself were rarely exhibited during his lifetime. Seuss always dreamed of sharing these works with his fans and had entrusted his wife, Audrey, to carry out his wishes once he was gone. Audrey believed that Ted himself would one day be evaluated not only as an author, but also as an artist in his own right. Listings wanted, we have buyers waiting.
