Dr. Seuss – The Cat in the Hat

Title: The Cat in the Hat
Dr. Seuss
Year: 1957

This is a children’s book written by Dr. Seuss, telling the story of two children who cannot go outside to play, because the rain is bucketing down and their mother is gone from the house. They are bored. But fear not! The flamboyant Cat in the Hat soon barges in to set things right. With his tricks and jests, and with his two little helpers aptly named Thing One and Thing Two, he wreaks havoc to the household to cheer up the children, with varied results. But what will mother say when she gets back, the anxious little fish wonders? Oh, he does not like this! Not one little bit!

The Cat in the Hat is  wonderful in its brevity and ingenuity. Written in rhyme, the book deserves to be read aloud, which takes roughly ten minutes, and is pure joy. The language flows without hindrance and highlights the hilarious story. This is how it should feel like to read something aloud. The angst-ridden fish is my favourite part, but there are many brilliant scenes in The Cat in the Hat, which is why I recommend everybody to read it, adults as well as children.
