The company said it is working to prevent the resale of six books of Dr. Seuss sold by the company responsible for the work of the late author earlier this week because they contain offensive images.

A spokesperson for the company said in an email: “eBay is currently sweeping our market to clear these items.”

As of Thursday morning, a list of hundreds of books can be found on the platform, although the number seems to be less than Wednesday night. An eBay spokeswoman said that it will take some time to review the seller’s list, and the company is monitoring the newly released list.

Susus Enterprises LP, who oversees Dr. Suss’ publishing interests and ancillary fields, said on Tuesday that it has decided that the author’s six books-“I thought I saw them on Mulberry Street.” “If I manage the zoo”; “McElligot’s swimming pool”; “Beyond the zebra!” “Super scrambled eggs!” and “Cat Quizers” will no longer be published because they “portray people in hurt and wrong ways.”
