Found Under Writing
Dr. Seuss Rejected by 27 Publishers
When Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) wrote his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, it was rejected by 27 publishers. A friend finally published his work in 1937, which was the beginning of a successful writing career.
By the time of death in 1991, Geisel's books had sold more than 200 million copies in 15 languages. Since his death another 22 million of his books have been sold. What if he had quit after his 26th rejection from a publisher?
