Long Description:
Wikipedia (visit link) informs us:

"The Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden is a sculpture garden in Springfield, Massachusetts that honors Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss. Located at The Quadrangle – an extraordinary cultural grouping that features three world-class museums and two regional history museums – the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden honors the world-renowned author and illustrator, who was born in Springfield in 1904. The monument was designed by Lark Grey Dimond-Cates, the author's stepdaughter and created by Sculptor and Artist Ron Henson. The sculpture garden features five, large bronze statues:

"Dr. Seuss and the Cat in the Hat": The title character of The Cat in the Hat standing alongside Dr. Seuss at his desk.
"The Storyteller": A chair placed in front of a 10-foot-tall (3.0 m) book with the text of Oh, the Places You'll Go!, the title character of Gertrude McFuzz, and beside it, the Grinch and his dog, Max.
"Horton Court": Horton the Elephant of Horton Hears A Who fame steps out of an open book accompanied by various ancillary characters from other Dr. Seuss stories, including Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat.
"The Lorax": The title character standing on a tree stump with the book's legendary refrain: Unless... This statue is located in front of the Springfield Science Museum, which features exhibits on global warming and environmental science.
'Yertle the Turtle': a 10-foot-tall (3.0 m) tower of turtles, which whimsically introduces visitors to the The Quadrangle from the arch on Chestnut Street."
