Adapted posthumously from the pencil and gouache on board created for the 1947 book, McElligot’s Pool.
A 1947 “Caldecott Honor” book, McElligot’s Pool clearly stands out among Geisel’s artistic accomplishments and is one of just two Dr. Seuss books developed from vibrantly colored paintings, versus his traditional pen and ink illustrations. The original paintings from this book remain out of the public eye under the archival care of the Mandeville Special Collections Library at the University of California, San Diego and, as such, retain their original luminous appearance.
