The author has sold over 650 million copies worldwide
Dr. Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel, is widely known for his work in children’s literature.
Publishing under many different pseudonyms throughout his career — from Theo LeSieg to Rosetta Stone — he ultimately settled on Dr. Seuss for a career that spanned seven decades.
The author wrote more than 60 books (not all were published) including "The Cat in the Hat" and "Green Eggs and Ham." His books have been translated into dozens of languages as well as in Braille and are sold in more than 95 countries.
Here’s a look at some of Dr. Seuss’ best-selling books of all-time.
6 DR. SEUSS BOOKS TO STOP BEING PUBLISHED BECAUSE OF RACIST IMAGERY
1) “Green Eggs and Ham”
Arguably the author’s most popular book ever written, “Green Eggs and Ham” sits atop the list of top-selling Dr. Seuss books of all-time.
The tale of Sam-I-Am trying to convince the unnamed character to try a plate of what should be repulsive green eggs and ham remains a timeless classic for all ages.
The 1960 book has received such universal acclaim that it was eventually adapted for television with 1973’s “Dr. Seuss on the Loose” and most recently, a Netflix adaptation of the same name, starring Michael Douglas, Adam DeVine and Keegan-Michael Key.
As of 2015, the book has sold 17.5 million copies, per the New York Daily News.

The book was ultimately adapted into a 2003 film starring Mike Myers of “Shrek" fame, Spencer Breslin and Kelly Preston.
“The Cat in the Hat” has sold 15.5 million copies as of 2015.
