The Cat in the Hat's Great Big Flapby Seuss
Synopses & Reviews
THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL—aka Dr. Seuss—is one of the most beloved children’s book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody.
From the Hardcover edition.
Now for the first time ever, the Cat in the Hat appears in a silly, Seussian flap book, which offers loads of learning and lots of laughs and is packed with over 50 seek-and-find flaps that help teach basic concepts such as colors, numbers, letters, shapes, and opposites!
Inspired by five all-time best-selling Beginner Books®, this Seussian tour de flap includes:
* Counting with the Cat in the Hat himself, from 1 fish to 20 Zeds (with hair on their heads!)
* Animal sounds, courtesy of Mr. Brown (Yes, he can moo! Lift the flap and you'll moo, too!)
* Rhyming games and wordplay inspired by There's a Wocket in My Pocket! and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish
* And as if all this weren't enough — Dr. Seuss's ABC in 26 flaps!
About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!
In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
