    Theodor Seuss Geisel is one of America's favorite authors. His classic works include: The Cat in the Hat (1957), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957), and Green Eggs and Ham (1960). His song Waltzing with Bears is probably best known through an expanded and modified version by Dale Marxen. Marxen's adaptation, featuring "Uncle Walter" instead of "Uncle Terwilliger", is a summer camp favorite.
