The Cat in the Hat

AR: 2.1
Lexile: 260
Written and illustrated by
Dr. Seuss
Normal-length Picture Book
Genre: Fantasy Fiction

Two kids are stuck at home and are visited by a cat in a hat. He causes mischief and mayhem, etc.

I know little people and grown-up people are all going to think I'm crazy, but I just never understood this "Cat in the Hat" thing. I don't really care for this book, and even less for the next book where he comes back. The rhymes are okay but I don't think the cat is a very interesting character. To me, he is what we call in Spanish a "travieso", a trouble-maker. If you like this book, great! I could take it or leave it.
