Dr. Suess, author behind The Cat and The Hat, once wrote a failed adult novel entitled The Seven Godivas, and it's back from the grave.

The amazing writer and illustrator, who taught us that we can rhyme pocket with wocket, is responsible for a line of adult fiction among his other greats like 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.' Many, many years ago, the devoted author wrote a naughty picture book about seven sisters that never wore clothes. That isn't too extreme today, but when the book was rejected for publishing in 1939, that was enough for a naughty stamp.

Resurrected from the grave it was barred in, The Seven Godivas is back and finally published.
