Ever wonder where some of the world’s best-selling authors invented enduring characters like Willy Wonka or James Bond? Take a look at seven homes of famous literary figures.
Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss pictured in 1957 at his home in La Jolla, Calif. Now tell us, who has not read about a Who, or can't riff a line from Green Eggs and Ham or The Cat in the Hat or How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Geisel was an animator, political cartoonist and worked in advertising during the Mad Men era before trying his hand at children's lit. His sales cross the 500 million mark. Every March 2, Geisel's birthday, is Read Across America Day.
