Gustav, Tadd And Todd: Dr. Seuss' 'Lost Stories'

The creative vision of author and illustrator Dr. Seuss introduced fantastic characters into the imaginations of generations of kids.

Two decades after his death, <em>The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories</em> reintroduces a collection of more obscure tales, including <em>Gustav the Goldfish</em> and <em>Tadd and Todd</em>.

Charles Cohen rediscovered and compiled the stories. He tells NPR's Neal Conan how he found them, and what he learned about Dr. Seuss' life and what he means to children today.
