Overview

A lesser-known collection of classic Dr. Seuss stories turns 50!

This collection of three rhyming stories by Dr. Seuss features a whole litter of Cat in the Hat-like cats! In "I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today!" a boastful cat bites off more than he can chew in the shape of 30 tigers; in "King Louie Katz"—a tale about tails—a single cat challenges authority and creates a more "demo-catic" society; and in "The Glunk That Got Thunk," a cat thinks up something so wild, she needs to un-thunk it! Beautifully illustrated in ink and watercolor, this quirky collection of Seussian silliness will be a welcome gift to Dr. Seuss fans of all ages, and features a peel-off 50th Anniversary Edition sticker on the front cover.

LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world.

If you've ever bragged about your ability to accomplish seemingly impossible tasks, this book is for you! Using his characteristic humor, Dr. Seuss presents stories told by the Cat in the Hat. Definitely worth checking out! Appropriate for kindergarten and beyond...

Seuss's geyser of genius glupps forth tart tales of front, feudalism and the fidgets.
