Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum


Formats & editions


From the mind of Dr. Seuss comes a book to help understand the sometimes puzzling thing we call art. Welcome to Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum - now open for a canter through art history.

Your tour guide will show you how different artists can look at one thing - like a horse - and have totally different visions. These different visions create ART. And this is a book that canters through the whole of art history, explaining the puzzling and imaginative thing we call 'art'.

With reproductions of over thirty iconic pieces of artwork - from Pablo Picasso to
Edouard Manet, René Magritte, Lucian Freud, Susan Rothenberg, Jackson Pollock, Raphael, and even the Lascaux cave. This is an exhibition you won't want to miss!
Based on a newly-discovered manuscript and sketches from Dr. Seuss, and brought to life by acclaimed illustrator Andrew Joyner, this is a thoroughly Seussian exploration of 'art'.

With cameo appearances from beloved Dr. Seuss characters, such as the Cat in the Hat and the Grinch, this playful picture book is totally unique. Ideal for home or classroom use, this is an inspiring gift for Seuss fans, artists, and horse lovers - of all ages.
