Celebrate the 75th birthday of this classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss with our new foil-covered, color-enhanced Anniversary Edition! As topical today as when it was first published in 1938, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is the story of a young peasant (the same as in Bartholomew and the Oobleck—a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. While The 500 Hats is one of Dr. Seuss's earliest and lesser known works, it is nevertheless totally Seussian and addresses subjects that we know the good doctor was passionate about throughout his life: the abuse of power (as in Yertle the Turtle and Horton Hears a Who); rivalry (as in The Sneetches); and of course, zany good humor (as in The Cat in the Hat and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)! Available for a limited time only, this is a perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans.

From Our Editors

Ah, Dr. Seuss, how do you invent such wonderful stories to share with the world, particularly this one about Bartholomew Cubbins and his many hats? The king has asked Cubbins to remove his hat as a sign of respect and deference, an order to which Cubbins is more than happy to follow. Yet, in The Five Hundred Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins each time he removes his hat he finds another one in its place - and that spells trouble for this subject. It's not until the last page that Cubbins finds a solution to this predicament. Kids will read on excitedly, hoping Cubbins fares well.
