Are there children's authors today who write like Seuss?

When I say "write like Seuss" I don't mean the stereotypes he is most remembered for: invented words and exotic illustrations. I mean the bouncy (anapestic) rhythm that makes anything sound like Seuss. This was usually combined with social concerns or commentary. There are many contemporary authors who write about social matters, but do any do it with the joyful light poetry of Seuss?
