The Lovereading4Kids comment

"Both my parents were great, but my mother was the one who read us our bedtime stories - everything from Curious George to Treasure Island. One of my favourites was The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. Every time she read it I was surprised and delighted that Thing One and Thing Two were able to clean up that horrific mess just as the parents' feet were appearing through the doorway. It’s the same principle used in any nail-biting thriller movie, but with a gold fish instead of Bruce Willis!" Chosen by Caroline Lawrence, July 2012 Guest Editor.

Classic and best-selling, the rhyming verse story of The Cat in the Hat remains as fresh as when it was first published. Arriving announced and uninvited the exuberant Cat shocks Sally and her brother with the total mayhem he causes. They know it is wrong, they know it is not what their mother would like. But the Cat is an unstoppable force and readers will love the chaos he causes and the children’s horror at it. Just when disaster seems to be inevitable as mother returns, the Cat shows the tidying up tricks he has up his sleeve!

The LoveReading Comment:

One of our 'Must Reads'. The perfect book for reading aloud with your toddler or for children who are just beginning to read on their own, Dr Seuss’s classic rhyming story about a mischievous Cat wearing a red and white striped hat who shows up to entertain two children when it’s pouring with rain. The story was crafted from just two words ‘Cat’ and ‘Hat’ and has wonderfully memorable lyrics and laugh out loud illustrations. This edition was released on the 50th anniversary of the Cat in the Hat’s first publication and will be treasured for a long time to come. ~ Julia Eccleshare

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.
