Oceanhouse Media, Inc. announces the sale of its Dr. Seuss apps for one week in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday and the National Education Association’s (NEA) Read Across America Day. Every Dr. Seuss app by the company originally priced at $1.99 - $3.99 is discounted by 25-50% for an entire week.
Adding to the celebration is the release of the free Dr. Seuss Camera - Happy Birthday Edition iPhone app featuring 11 birthday cards. Using the iPhone’s built-in camera or Photo Library, cards can be personalized with stamps, borders and classic Seussian text, then emailed to friends and family or saved to the Photo Library.
Two new Dr. Seuss omBooks (Oceanhouse Media digital books) are also available for both Apple and Android devices. Happy Birthday to You! is offered at a special introductory price of $0.99. This is Dr. Seuss’s joyous ode to individuality, allowing readers to experience firsthand the thrill of celebrating a birthday as it is done in the land of Katroo.
The second new omBook is the highly anticipated The Cat in the Hat Comes Back available at $2.99 for one week. In this story, the mischievous cat spreads a big pink spot all over the house. When Little Cats A through Z are invited too, will they be a help or a hindrance?

About Dr. Seuss Enterprise, L.P.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises was founded in 1993 following the death of Theodor S. Geisel, Dr. Seuss, to conserve and nurture the works of Dr. Seuss by protecting the integrity of the Dr. Seuss books while expanding beyond books into licensed merchandise. The licensing effort is a strategic part of the overall effort to strengthen and protect the relationship consumers have with Dr. Seuss characters. Theodor Geisel said he never wanted to license his characters to anyone who would “round out the edges”. That is one of the guiding philosophies of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.
