Fans of Dr. Seuss are snapping up his children's books , a day after the author's estate announced that it would discontinue publication of six titles that contained racist and insensitive imagery. As of Wednesday afternoon, all six books included in the announcement were sold out on sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble , with resellers listing the discontinued titles for up to $500 on eBay . Copies of Dr. Seuss' If I Ran the Zoo appeared to have been briefly restocked online , though it's now sold out as well. In addition to If I Ran the Zoo , the six discontinued Dr. Seuss books include And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, McElligot's Pool, On Beyond Zebra!, Scrambled Eggs Super! , and The Cat's Quizzer . Dr. Seuss Enterprises said it decided to remove the books from print after an internal review found the books "portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong. Ceasing sales of these books," a statement read, "is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises' catalog represents and supports all communities and families."
