making full use of his Oxford University PhD in English literature was the American born grandson of German immigrants to the US Beginning his career in the late 1920 s as an illustrator and cartoonist, it wasn t until nearly 30 years later that Seuss produced his classic series of children s books that so many of us know and love.Never having the benefit of the books of Dr Seuss when I was a child, it was with great pleasure that I discovered his work many years later when reading them to my own children.For anyone who has not yet discovered Seuss s classic children s books now is the time to do so What Seuss has created using such imagination, with a particularly dynamic both flamboyant but simple and unique style of illustration, coupled with his verse rhythms and the use of repetitive but building and twisting phrases all in an extremely and deliberately accessible way, is a series of works which are a fantastic visual and verbal feast, captivating both children and adults alike.For me the most memorable examples of Seuss s work are The Cat in the Hat along with its sequel The Cat in the Hat Comes Back For the wonderful creation of mischief that is the Cat in the Hat Fox in Socks For the tremendously bizarre tongue twisters Green Eggs and Ham For the ever building and dynamic nature of the verse All of them of course have Seuss s trademark fantastic illustrations and rhythmic verses throughout.It is that unique combination of Attractive illustrations and exciting verse both very dynamic, always moving always going somewhere new both very strange, silly and bizarre all in an extremely accessible, engaging and compelling and let s not forget educational way which creates Dr Seuss s fantastically immersive world A timeless world of the imagination, of amazing words, pictures, rhymes, stories, learning, but above all else FUNNot just for children, but for the child in all of us The Cat in the Hat is back and continues messing up things at the house of Sally and her brother Their mother is conveniently away again, but this time the fish is also missing.The Cat tries to fix the mess that he made and in the end he makes a bigger mess Until he lifts his hat and now we know what he hides underneath it Little Cats As many as the Alphabet Letters Perfect little copies of the Cat in the Hat These cats will help cleaning up, but not before they create much bigger mess.Aga The Cat in the Hat is back and continues messing up things at the house of Sally and her brother Their mother is conveniently away again, but this time the

laughter and it can help children with their reading and with remembering the english alphabet Better even than the original The Cat in the Hat This one is about snow Sally and I are outside shovelling, making paths when the cat turns up He helps himself to a bath and eats cake in the bath, which leaves a pink ring The ring is cleaned by the cat with mother s new dress, and then I believe the pink is scrubbed off dad s shoes on to the bed, at which point the Cat calls in little Cats A, B, and C to help The pink is fan blown out the window, onto the snow, soreinforcements a Better even

maybe not all my details are absolutely correct as this is done from memory Leo has the book, which I could tell from his absolute silence he was Impressed by Andrea Renee CoxWhat a cute ABC book I hadn t read this Dr Seuss book prior to now, surprisingly I m adding it to my to purchase list, because it s very adorable and one I can imagine reading to any kids I may have down the road.I was not compensated for my honest review. My Grandchildren love this book so much that I m thinking of leaving home if I have to read it yet again I love this book really and it s great to watch their faces light up when this book appears. As much as I and my kids adored the original The Cat in the Hat, this followup and I believe there were actually two or three others as well paled in comparison to the original That is not to say that it is not entertaining, but I d rather go for Green Eggs and Ham or Horton Hears a Who than this one given the choice. Not as powerful as the original Cat in the Hat, but with all the inexorable poignancy of a repetition compulsion, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back draws the marrow from the bourgeois skeletons broken by his original foray into suburban America Is this crisis or has it now become commentary or,insidiously, is it both Subliminally compelling The reason we lost China and Southeast Asia.
