I love Dr. Seuss. There is a quality in his writing that finds a balance. Yes, we can say what we think, but in his writing he also writes about the need for kindness, loving those around us, and accepting we are all different.
Where else could we find a cat in the hat who carries a fish around in a small bowl, not having him/her for lunch? I am not sure if it is a girl or boy fish. Does it matter? I think not. Where else would we find Whoville where we explore who we are alongside fictional characters and others we live with? We discover there that we need those differences. They make us special and unique.
