The Cat in the Hat (Paperback) Price: Rs.114

The Cat In The Hat is a children’s fiction book that features its title character the naughty Cat with a tall hat.

Summary Of The Book

The American cartoonist and writer Dr. Seuss’s The Cat In The Hat, is a funny and humorous book for children. It is the first book in which Seuss has introduced the main character, a tall and anthropomorphic cat who keeps on wearing a white and red-striped hat along with a red bow tie. The story revolves around this cat and two young children, Sally and her brother, whose lives become chaotic thanks to the actions of the cat.

Published in 1957, the story begins with the children who are left unattended at home on a rainy day. The two siblings are getting bored, and to entertain them the cat wears a hat and he transforms an otherwise dull day into a crazy one. The cat, carrying a pale blue umbrella, brings in some cheer to the household.

The Cat In The Hat is a perfect combination of crazy and funny stories consisting of wacky characters. It also reflects the signature style of the author and hence is filled with lots of repetition, rhythm, and rhyme. The entire story is written in anapestic dimeter. Dr. Seuss aims to help the young readers of different ages and abilities to learn how to read on their own.

Over 11 million copies of the book have been sold and it has also been adapted into animated films. The Cat In The Hat has also been translated into 12 languages.

About Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss is the pen name of Theodor Seuss Geisel, a renowned American author, cartoonist, and poet. He is famously known for his children’s fiction.

Other books published by Dr. Seuss are Mr Brown Can Moo, Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Seuss's Abc, Horton Hears a Who!, Wacky Wednesday, Dr. Seuss Sleep Book, The Sneetches and Other Stories, Ten Apples Up On Top, and Horton Hatches the Egg.

Most of Geisel’s works are written in anapestic tetrameter, a common poetic meter used by English authors. For brief passages he used the trochaic meter. In his early works, he used different shades of pencil in his artwork, and post war he started adding some colors. His cartoons show motion with lines following the conventional cartoon tradition.

Seuss was born on 2nd March, 1904, in Springfield, Massachusetts. He graduated in 1925 from Dartmouth College. He started his writing career after graduation by submitting humorous articles for publication. During World War II, he created political cartoons. Post war, he returned to children’s books. Several of his works have been adapted into movies and television series. Dr. Seuss wrote more than 60 books that sold around 600 million copies all across the world. He passed away in 1991, at the age of 87.

My 3 year old loves this one

This is a classic tale by Dr. Suess. I find that Dr. suess books encourages my son to try out different rhyming words or make up a couple of funny new ones himself. He likes the mischief done by the cat in the hat and the silly tricks he shows makes my son laugh.

A wonderful Read

A classic by Dr seuss . It captures the child's imagination from the first page and continues to hold it through the book . The language is simple and the rhyming makes it very attractive to the target age . My 3 year old could repeat the whole story after 2 reads .

Happy with the purchase

Was received in excellent condition, while the Indian paperback version is not as attractive as the hardbound version, the book is very engaging book for pre-primary age group.
Very satisfied with the purchase.
