I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dr. Seuss tells three rhyming tales featuring the extended family of the Cat in the Hat in I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! And Other Stories. The Cat’s son shows bravado in “I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today!” while his daughter gets a bit carried away imagining “The Glunk That Got Thunk.” And we look back at one of the Cat’s ancestors for a tale about tails in “King Looie Katz.” This lesser-known collection of classic Seussian silliness will be a welcome addition to the libraries of fans of all ages!


The Cat in the Hat tells us three zany stories-in-verse about his son, his daughter, and his great-great-grandfather.  

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.
