Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Some of his earliest children's books, like ''The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins'' and ''The King's Stilts'', were written in prose rather than in rhyme. (This was also true of the sequel to the former, ''Bartholomew and the Oobleck'', although it was grandfathered in from its predecessor, since by the time the book was written, he had consistently switched to rhyme).

* FantasticFlora: Much of his visual work incorporates bizarre-looking trees and shrubs, many of them inspired by RealLife exotic botanical species grown at the San Diego Zoo where Seuss spent much of his time.

Most of his work liberally uses [[RhymesOnADime rhyming schemes]], [[MagicAIsMagicA illogical logic]], [[{{Bizarrchitecture}} fantastical buildings]], [[PerfectlyCromulentWord nonsensical vocabulary]], and very pretty illustrations. This, at the time, was fairly radical and the epitome of advant-garde, though [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny not by today's standards]]. Seuss was a lifelong inhabitant of Springfield, Massachusetts, and drew inspiration from his surroundings; for instance, ''And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street'' took place on [[WriteWhatYouKnow a real life street.]] (The book's events occur on the intersection of Mulberry and Bliss Streets, which both exist. However, the real-world versions never cross.)

* BittersweetEnding: A number of books, but ''The Sneetches'' is a prominent example. In the end, McBean successfully cons the sneetches out of all their money with his Star Machine gambit, leaving them penniless, but the experience teaches them how stupid and pointless racial discrimination is and learn to live as equals from that point on.
