Art by the prolific career of children's author Dr Seuss will be on display in Perth this Christmas - at least until the Grinch steals them.
A collection of works from the ever-popular Theodor Seuss Geisel including paintings, sketches and even his unorthodox taxidermy will be on show in a special exhibition presented by Linton and Kay Galleries.
Trevor Harvey, curator of the Art of Dr Seuss, said the exhibit offered an insight into the mind of one the most popular authors of the past century.
Born in 1904, Geisel worked as an editorial cartoonist for many years before making a career in advertising where he became one of the highest paid people in the industry.
The successes of his early car-eer though would be eclipsed by his phenomenal achievements as a children's author selling more than 750 million books to date.
Mr Harvey said the appeal of Dr Seuss transcended generations and backgrounds.
"The books - the illustrations and the words - are timeless," he said.
"He wrote to appeal to the child in all of us and his messages resonate with people of all ages." Mr Harvey said many of the special pieces on display showed the development of ideas and the thinking process of a genius. "He was a perfectionist. He invented his own colour wheel and numbered each colour so the printers would get it just right," he said.
"Many of the pieces show the original sketches with scribbling out, re-writing and redrawing before it progressed into one of his iconic illustrations."
The pop-up exhibition and store is open 10am-6pm until tomorrow on Hay Street opposite His Majesty's Theatre.
