"I can read it all by myself" is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. These books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme and bright pictures that can be "read" even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading.
With its unique combination of riotous rhymes and zany characters, Dr Seuss's most celebrated book 'The Cat In The Hat' has delighted early readers for generations. This special 40th anniversary edition celebrates the first publication of this absurdly funny book and provides lovers of Dr Seuss - young and old - with something to treasure for years to come.
You may be meeting the Cat in the Hat for the first time . . . or you may be catching up with an old friend. One thing is certain - you are sure to have "lots of good fun that is funny!"
