Yes, Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize back in 1984. In addition to receiving the prestigious Pulitzer, he also received three Caldecott Honor awards, two Academy awards, two Emmy awards, and a Peabody for his work. He was also the recipient of 6 honorary doctorates, one of which came from his alma mater, Dartmouth College.

I don't think so. The Pulitzers aren't awarded for children's literature. He might have been a better candidate for the Caldecott Medal for illustration, but I'm not sure he ever won that either.
