Publisher's Synopsis
Although Sally and her brother are admonished by their goldfish not to let that cat in the house, they ignore their practical pet—and the world of children's books changed forever. Written using only 236 easy-to-read words, author/illustrator Theodor Geisel, who wrote under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss, created this book as a reaction to the 1950s classroom reading materials that were considered uninteresting and thus part of the problem of illiteracy in America.

"Dr. Seuss took 220 words, rhymed them, and turned out The Cat in the Hat, a little volume of absurdity that worked like a karate chop on the weary little world of Dick, Jane and Spot."       ~Ellen Goodman, Detroit Free Press
