Description:
Likely for a billboard. A sly tableau depicting a somewhat skeptical-looking goat munching on some Seussian machine parts; the bag of sugar collage and the accompanying tagline suggesting a dubious palatability, even for a goat. Geisel executed several adverts for Holly Sugar over the course of several decades. He eventually cut ties with the company in the early 1950s after he publicly lobbied for a local billboard ban in his hometown of La Jolla, CA, due to the overwhelming number which he thought unsightly. (Morgan, Judith & Neil, Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel, pages 146-47.)

[where I] looked into the llama situation . . .They can spit at you and aim every shot they make . . . I go all over looking for peculiar animals [and] I've discovered that God has turned out more ridiculous looking creatures than I have"--(Morgan, Judith and Neil Bowen. Dr. Seuss & Mr. Geisel, 1995, pages 76-77.) Peru was the inspiration for several images he made during these years, including a short-lived Hearst newspaper comic with an Andean theme called "Hejji by Dr. Seuss" in 1935.
