Adapted posthumously from an early concept drawing and the final illustration for the 1959 book, Happy Birthday To You!
Ted Geisel created three extraordinary books during his lifetime that stand out artistically from his famous color filled pen-and-ink line drawings. The Seven Lady Godivas (1939), McElligot’s Pool (1947), and Happy Birthday To You! (1959) all are comprised of elaborate paintings reminiscent of the works he did privately for his own pleasure.
