DR Zeuss Special ☠️💫☠️💫☠️💫☠️💫☠️💫☠️
The Seven Lady Godivas, Dr. Seuss' forgotten adult book, was filled to the brim with naked women, peeping toms, and much, much more.
The work of Theodor Geisel (better known as Dr. Seuss) is engrained in the memories of countless American children. Whether it’s one of his many inspiring quotes, his not-so-hidden political messages, or even the movie adaptations of some of his most iconic children’s books, nearly everyone has a favorite Dr. Seuss work.
One of his works not likely to be on anyone’s top ten list (nor even anyone’s radar at all), however, is The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History’s Barest Family. It is, after all, the only story he wrote with characters drawn completely in their birthday suits.
This type of work might seem off-brand and out of character for the beloved children’s author, but it was actually built into Seuss’s contract. He made the specific request to publish one adult book when he left Vanguard publishing for Random House back in 1939, and Random House agreed to his terms.
Seuss’s story of the seven Lady Godivas was based off of the titular legend. The story goes that Lady Godiva rode a horse through Coventry, England completely naked to protest the high taxes of her husband, the Earl of Mercia. The townspeople were ordered to stay indoors to avoid seeing nobility in the buff. Instead of just one free spirit, Seuss chose to feature seven nudist sisters. In the story, the sisters have just lost their father, but refuse to get married until they can tell the world of “some new and worthy Horse Truth, of benefit to man.” Seuss states in the foreword that “history has treated no name so shabbily as it has the name Godiva.” (Although modern minds may shift to Godiva fine Belgian chocolate, the now-famous chocolatier had only been around for 13 years at the time Seuss wrote his first — and only — adult book).

Some kind people gifted me this little Dr Seuss book recently about a little guy who’s travelling to a mythical trouble-free land. It’s a good reminder that in life stuff’s always going to happen that we can’t control- and that sometimes all we have is the choice in how we respond.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. 👠 You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 💪 ~ Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

We loved exploring the children’s area of the Lockhart public library. The area was bright, colorful, and full of treasures for the littles. #library #publiclibrary #childrensbooks #childrenslibrary #lockhart #lockharttx #bookstagram #books #booksofinstagram #bookish #drseussday

It could be his head wasn’t screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
