I think the reviewer was unimpressed with the match book.

I though Philip Bump, in the Post, had a clever lead...

If curtailing racist imagery in Dr. Seuss is ‘cancel culture,’ what, exactly, is your culture?

He proceeds to suggest what the answer might be....

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/03/02/if-curtailing-racist-imagery-dr-seuss-is-cancel-culture-what-exactly-is-your-culture/

I see no real cancellation here, either.  The vast majority of Seuss titles remain in print.  The ones going out of print do have some startlingly racist depictions of blacks and Asians, and I'd have no problem with my children (or grandchildren, in my case) skipping those six titles (four of which are so obscure that few have even heard of them - they were probably doomed to be OOP anyway, as happens to most books).  Seuss was a big-hearted and kindly man, and the rest of his oeuvre reflects that clearly.
