IIRC there's an illustrated adaptation of The Call of Cthulhu done in the style of Dr. Seuss. I believe it's on DeviantArt.

Thanks for celebrating with me!

I was an underclassman in college when he died, and I remember all of us in the dorm talking about his passing. An exchange student from Kazakhstan didn't know who he was, so one of the girls drove to her parents' house, got an armful of his books, and brought them back. We spent the whole night reading Dr. Seuss books to each other, reminiscing about which stories we'd read as children (or had read to us), and delighting as the Kazakh student fell in love with them for the first time.
