'You can't make this stuff up':

• by Jennifer Smith

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the company that preserves and protects his legacy, announced early Tuesday that the six books would no longer be published 

Almost immediately after the announcement, the prices of those books surged hundreds of dollars on eBay 

A vintage copy of 'If I Ran the Zoo' was priced at $510 after receiving 54 bids, while a copy of 'Scrambled Eggs Super!' was at $565 after 58 bids 

A copy of 'The Cat's Quizzer', which the seller marketed as brand new, was going for $630 after receiving 48 bids 

On Thursday, eBay started removing those listings claiming it violated policies  

The move to cease publication of the books drew immediate reaction on social media from those who called it another example of 'cancel culture.' 

Their anger was also directed at President Biden after he omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day
