Published to great acclaim, the collection included over two hundred cartoons from Geisel’s years working for the New York daily newspaper PM.

Now Dr. Seuss & Co. Go to War presents a new trove of close to four hundred discoveries from the PM World War II archives, including over one hundred cartoons by Seuss, fifty cartoons by the New Yorker’s Saul Steinberg, and works by the leading cartoonists of the time, such as Al Hirschfeld, caricaturist for the New York Times; Polish-born American artist Arthur Szyk; and future New Yorker cartoonists Carl Rose and Mischa Richter. The cartoons and commentary in this handsome volume (to be published in the same format as the original Dr. Seuss Goes to War) cover the five years of the war, illustrating changing attitudes and providing a complex picture of the issues that concerned Americans.
In close to fifty years as an editor, first at Pantheon Books and then as Founding Director of The New Press, André Schiffrin was responsible for a great many books on World War II. He is the author of several books himself, among them The Business of Books and A Political Education. He lives in New York City.
"The fascinating sequel to the bestselling Dr. Seuss Goes To War, with over one hundred never-before-published Seuss cartoons and including the work of Saul Steinberg, Al Hirschfeld, and others. And now, rescued from the newsprint where they moldered unseen for over half a century, we can turn to the cartoons that let us know what happens when Horton hears a heil." -ART SPIEGELMAN, PULITZER PRIZE–WINNING AUTHOR OF MAUS ON DR. SEUSS GOES TO WAR
