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.

First published in 1958 - "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back" is a children's book written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel under the pen name Dr. Seuss. As of 2007, more than 10 million copies of The Cat in the Hat Comes Back have been printed, and it has been translated into more than 12 different languages, including Latin, under the title Cattus Petasatus.

The story centres around a tall, lean, anthropomorphic cat, who wears a red and white-striped hat and a red bow tie. One cold, snowy day the Cat shows up at the house of Sally and her brother, Dicky when their mother is away. Ignoring repeated objections from the children's fish, the Cat shows the children a few of his tricks in an attempt to entertain them.

Originally from Springfield, Massachusetts - Theodor Seuss Geisel (born March 2, 1904) was a cartoonist, and artist. He died in 1991 (at the age of 87) from cancer.

Works as a perfect companion to The Cat In The Hat, but a great story all of its own. Full of imagination and charm, and a good first reader, with rhythm to help them along.

When Sally and her brother are left at home on a snow day, the cat returns to cause more mischief and mayhem.

"...surpasses 'The Cat in the Hat'"? Hardly! I've found it much more tedious, repetitive and less fun than the original.

Kind of fun, but just be warned that the cat uses a toy gun to "shoot" the spots in the end.

Dr. Seuss's great achievements include early readers like this one, using only simple words yet conveying a highly original, witty, entertaining story. Superb--even if you already know how to read.

Dr. Seuss's ingenious narrative even surpasses "The Cat in the Hat".
