Dr Seuss

My wolf muse has left me just now, I am busy working on a book about Aleppo and in constant shell shock at the politics of my own country and America. 
However I was interested today to find this 1941 Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) cartoon using the Red Riding Hood analogy to criticise the refusal of the U.S. to allow emigration of Jews.
