Dr. Seuss here draws his famous ''Cat in the Hat'' from the 1957 book of the same name. The children's book author adds his original art to a 1971 abstract drawing of a woman done by Diddo Clark, a friend of Seuss'. Dr. Seuss also adds a thought bubble for the Cat that reads, ''I don't know whether the kids did. But I had FUN! Thanks to Diddo.'' Clark, an undergraduate at the University of California at San Diego, taught a class for freshman on the pursuit of excellence in which Theodor Geisel (Seuss) was a guest speaker. The thought bubble about the kids having fun refers to his lecture at U.C.S.D. Clark corresponded with Seuss throughout the 1970's and 1980's. The envelope in which the drawing was mailed to Clark accompanies the drawing. The 5'' x 11.5'' envelope, postmarked 18 November 1971 from Theodor Geisel's home address, is mounted to a 20'' x 6.5'' mat. Very good condition. The 7'' x 16.75'' drawing is matted to an overall size of 9.25'' x 20''. Drawing has been folded for mailing, else fine.
