In this Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, join Bartholomew Cubbins in Dr. Seuss’s classic tale of one king’s magical mishap. Bored with rain, sun, fog, and snow, King Derwin of Didd summons his royal magicians to create something new and exciting to fall from the sky. What he gets is a storm of sticky green globs called Oobleck, which soon causes a royal mess. But with the assistance of the wise page boy Bartholomew, the king (along with young readers) learns that the simplest words can sometimes solve the biggest problems.
Cat fanciers rejoice! Available for the first time is a picture book-size, jacketed edition of The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss--the classic, deliciously anarchic story of a giant cat in a hat whose unexpected arrival turns a dull, rainy day into a madcap adventure. Although written for beginning readers, The Cat in the Hat makes an ideal read-aloud for children of all ages. Highly collectible, it's a purr-fect gift for Seuss fans of all ages!
