(San Diego, CA) — The company in charge of Dr. Seuss’s estate says it will no longer publish six books because they portray people in ways that are “hurtful and wrong.”
A statement from Dr. Seuss Enterprises said it’s taking the step after a panel of experts reviewed all of the child author’s works last year.

Some of the books used stereotypes to portray Asians, Blacks and Jews.
Most of the Seuss’s characters were white and in some cases showed white people dominating other races.
The six books are “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” “If I Ran the Zoo” “McElligot’s Pool” “On Beyond Zebra!” Scrambled Eggs Supper!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.”
