Long before Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen came onto the scene, children were infatuated by Dr. Seuss’ stories of the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, and the curmudgeonly Grinch. Beginning January 17, fans of all ages can rediscover Theodor Seuss Geisel’s magical worlds of make believe when “The Art of Dr. Seuss” takes center stage at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. The public exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Ann Jackson Gallery and features 140 pieces by the Pulitzer Prize– winning author and illustrator, including limited-edition works, life-size bronzes, and whimsical taxidermy sculptures. On Saturdays and Sundays, visitors will be treated to live performances of Seussical courtesy of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Oh, how lucky we are. (561-622-2115, thegardensmall. com) —Kerry Shorr
