Synopsis

The Best of Dr Seuss The Cat in the Hat, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, Dr Seuss's ABC by Dr. Seuss

To accompany the release of the live action movie of The Cat in the Hat, starring Mike Myers, HarperCollins are proud to present this bumper bind-up of three of Dr. Seuss's most popular books: 'The Cat in the Hat', 'The Cat in the Hat Comes Back' and 'Dr. Seuss's ABC'. 'The Cat in the Hat' When the Cat in the Hat steps in on the mat, Sally and her brother are in for a roller-coaster ride of havoc and mayhem! The cat can rescue them from a dull rainy day, but it'll mean lots of spills along the way. 'The Cat in the Hat Comes Back' When the Cat in the Hat once more steps into the lives of Sally and her brother, he's soon up to his old tricks. He turns the house upside down, and the snow pink, ably assisted by a team of tiny helpers that he keeps in his hat! 'Dr. Seuss's ABC' Big B, little b, what begins with B? Baby, barber, bubbles and a bumblebee! Children can have lots of fun learning about big and little letters.

About the Author

Dr. Seuss

“I look at the world through the wrong end of a telescope.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of children learn to read.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a brewer and park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England (where he met his first wife Helen Palmer), he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children`s books and his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937.

His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books collectively known as Beginner Books. In all Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 children’s books during a career that spanned over 50 years, picking up numerous awards, including two Emmy awards for television and a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation along the way.
