The Cat in animation4rthe Hat, was written by Dr. Seuss in 1957. The story is of two children and there cynical talking goldfish who are left alone in the house when their parents leave. It is raining so the kids are left inside with nothing to do. The Cat in the Hat comes along with thing one and thing two and proceeds to try to entertain the children with a large amount of chaos resulting.ghy

The book itself is considered an impressive feat of skill as Dr.Seuss editor required him to use a list of words no longer than 223 words, but he decided to write the book because he felt there were not enough entertaining stories being used to teach children.

“We looked!
Then we saw him
step in on the mat!
We looked!
And we saw him!
The Cat in the Hat!”

“I know it is wet
And the sun is not sunny.
But we can have
Lots of good fun
that is funny!”

“Look at me!
Look at me!
Look at me NOW!
It is fun to have fun
But you have
to know how.”

“’Have no fear, little fish,’
Said the Cat in the Hat.
‘These Things are
good Things.’
And he gave them a pat”

“I know some good games we could play,”
Said the cat.
“I know some new tricks,”
Said the Cat in the Hat.
“A lot of good tricks.
I will show them to you.
Your mother
Will not mind at all if I do”

“Then our mother came in
And she said to us two,
‘Did you have any fun?
Tell me. What did
you do?”
And Sally and I did not
know what to say.
Should we tell her
The things that went on
there that day?”

“Well…what would YOU do
If your mother asked you?”
