Here's the story behind newly minted grad Brenna Martini and the best-kept secret EVER.

I graduated High School this week. When my Dad said he had a present for me I thought I was getting some cheesy graduation card. But what I received was something truly priceless. Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of Oh the Places You'll Go, by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled and said that it meant a lot and that I loved that book. But then he told me "No, open it up." ...On the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. I start tearing up but I'm still confused. He tells me "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." He managed to keep this book a secret for 13 years, and apparently everyone else in my life knew about it! Yes the intended effect occured... I burst out in tears. Sitting there reading through this book there are encouraging and sweet words from every teacher I love and remember through my years in this small town. My early teachers mention my "Pigtails and giggles," while my high school teachers mention my "Wit and sharp thinking.." But they all mention my humor and love for life. is astounding to receive something this moving, touching, nostalgic, and thoughtful. I can't express how much I love my Dad for this labor of love.

A bronze statue of one of Dr. Seuss's iconic characters, The Lorax, was stolen from the home of Seuss's widow, Audrey Geisel, over the weekend.

Geisel noticed the two-foot sculpture and its tree-stump base sometime were missing on Monday. The property manager says he found footprints that indicated the 300-pound Lorax had been dragged to an access road and lifted over a fence.

Police say it's unclear whether the statue was stolen due to the popularity of the character -- who is currently enjoying a big-screen revival -- or just the value of the bronze itself.

Investigators have not commented on whether they intend to interview the Old Once-ler on the subject of why the Lorax was lifted and taken somewhere.

With the success of its CG-adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax, Universal is siccing its animation subsidiary Illumination Entertainment on yet another classic Seuss title, The Cat in the Hat.

Universal's live-action Cat in the Hat feature, which was considered a bomb despite grossing over $100 million, is only nine years old, but with The Lorax defeating John Carter -- AKA "the year's first blockbuster" -- the feeling among the involved parties is that Dr. Seuss books "connect better in animation."

Rob Lieber will write, Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri will produce, and Dr. Seuss's wife Audrey Geisel will executive produce. No word yet on a release date.

In Memoriam of the Day: While we honor the memory of legendary puppeteer Jim Henson on what would have been his 75th birthday, it's important to take a moment or five to pay tribute to another inimitable contributor to our collective childhood: Theodor Geisel -- better know to most as Dr. Seuss -- who passed away twenty years ago today.
