The riotously funny follow-up to The Cat in the Hat celebrates its 60th Anniversary!

The Cat is back—along with some surpise friends—in this beloved Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. Dick and Sally have no time to play. It's winter and they have mountains of snow to shovel. So when the Cat comes to visit, he decides to go inside and to take a bath. No problem, right? Wrong! The pink ring he leaves in the tub creates is a very BIG pink problem when he transfers the stubborn stain from the bath onto Mother's white dress, Dad's shoes, the floors, the walls, and ultimately, over the entire yard full of snow! Will the kids EVER clean up the mess? You bet they will, with some help from the Cat and his helpers: 26 miniature cats (AKA Little Cats A-Z) who live inside the Cat's hat! This classic Dr. Seuss story is the perfect choice for beginning readers and read-alouds, especially on snow days! And with a peel-off 60th Anniversary sticker on the front cover, it makes a perfect gift for all ages.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and othe...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sequel to the much loved story This is an awesome book to follow up The Cat in the Hat with! A great story with lots of whimsical Seuss illustrations! This is definitely one of Seuss' longer stories at 72 pages, so there is that much more to enjoy. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from THE CAT IN THE HAT bySeuss Seuss As an adult though, I find this fanciful tale wonderfully satisfying. There’s an old fairytale feel to it that reminds me of sprites coming in and rearranging the furniture. There’s also a whimsical message that says, ‘quit being so uptight…things will work out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My least favourite Seuss Worst. Sequel. Ever. I hide this book whenever we visit my parents as my kids enjoy it but I find it torturous to read. I particularly dislike the bibi that blasts the pink spot all over the white snow. Perhaps I'm reading too much into it, but the whole book feels a little, well, violent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good read, but not as great as the original I was expecting great things because I love The Cat in the Hat so much. This is still a great read, and my child loves it, but I did not find it quite as enjoyable and at times a wee bit violent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same Cat, Same Hat, who would ever have guessed that! Here we are, once again The silly cat, the silly grin The same old cat, the same old hat Who has the same routine down pat It came upon a snowy day The cat in hat decides to pay A visit once again to those Friends he had earlier chose And oops! It's bath time for the kitty But he leaves the tub so gritty He must go and look for help to clean Such a mess should not be seen That silly cat! That gosh-darned hat! I still don't know what's up with that! Where did he come from, once again Surely fun like this is a sin! The mischief truly knows no bounds When cats like this are hang-arounds And I should know, I've got some now But they never reach my hats, somehow But surely we would welcome more Of the fun we knew before And Dr. Seuss, he did provide us With more tails, er, tails hilarious Huzzah that the cat, he did come back and with the hat, not on the rack but on his head, inside devising situations not compromising But always ending up in spirit most jolly, happy, and we're near it when we read the silly rhymes remembering them in silly times We'll never forget the cat's appearance (from a book not usually on clearance) And thus he comes again to renew His friendship with me, and also with you. After the success of 'The Cat in the Hat', who wouldn't want a sequel? The same Cat and the same children are matched again in this story, for new mischief and new adventures. Who would guess that such clever rhymes and language inventions could be done with such a limited vocabulary? It is the very simplicity and low number of vocabulary words that makes this and other Dr. Seuss books such wonderful learning aids for children. The whimsical versification makes them a delight for adults, too. Children who are raised on Dr. Seuss never forget him. And the Cat in the Hat is central to the Dr. Seuss canon; it is surprising that this sequel is not better known. Pros The cat again, the hat again Cons No, I cannot find a one, not one! Brilliant!
