I think I know 7/15, which is embarrassing since my 6-year-old has an entire shelf dedicated to Dr. Seuss!

My favorite Seuss book is definitely Yertle the Turtle. 

2+ 4 + 10= 16! <- did I win?

6. Lorax!

Keep going :)

Too bad, I don't even know Dr. Seuss 😟

Now Asterix or Tintin, I'd be up in the 95% range

Oh yes, that would be much better. I really had to google Dr. Seuss. He's totally unknown in Germany. I know the Grinch, but that's all.

Ooooh, I could dig up some Tintin, that'd be a fun little quiz too.
