Question 7:

In May of 1954 "Life Magazine" published an article criticizing the books children learned to read with in schools, stating, "Why should [school primers] not have pictures that widen rather than narrow the associative richness the children give to the words they illustrate — drawings like those of the wonderfully imaginative geniuses among children’s illustrators, Tenniel, Howard Pyle, 'Dr. Seuss,' Walt Disney?"
In response to this challenge, Dr. Seuss wrote this book in 1957.  (place mouse pointer over ? icon to view hints or answer requirements)
