Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to the concern that "pallid primers [with] abnormally courteous, unnaturally clean boys and girls' were leading to growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope | 4/8/2011

    " This is a great book to explore cause and effect. Also, it is a great alphabet book with all the little cat helpers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tate | 2/25/2011

    " Tate says he would like a Little Cat for himself, like Little Cat Z who is too hard to see. I've noticed -- in any book, not just Seuss -- Tate's favorite characters always seem to be the underdogs, or the little characters who play an integral part of the storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leftbanker | 2/10/2011

    " As far as sequels go I would have to rate this one right up there with The Godfather II. The only problem is that the ending is so abrupt that when I finish I always feel like there must be a few pages missing from my copy of the book. "

About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  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 kids learn to read.
