Great book

I loved this book as a child and am so happy that I get to share that love with my own child. The condition of the book is just amazing. I can already tell that this is going to be a much loved edition to our little library

great translation, too small for 1 year olds

This is a great translation - they really translated the spirit of Dr. Seuss. There's a good rhythm, lots of rhymes and word play, etc. I grew up with Dr. Seuss in English and this translation feels like Seuss to me. I've seen another version of Chat Chapeaute that translates the original literally and it is terrible! Completely misses the point of Dr. Seuss. My only complaint is that this book is paperback and it is small - difficult for my nearly 2 year old to hold while I read. The only big hardback version of Chat Chapeaute I have found was the literal translation version which I don't think is worth buying at any price, so we'll have to get by with this.

Great!

I really enjoy The Cat in the Hat and now I can share it with kids who only speak French!

Appeals to any audience

Having studied Latin throughout high school, I could appreciate the innovation and creativity necessary to translate Dr. Seuss' classic story while still preserving rhyme and meter. However, my little sister, who has just recently learned to read on such classics as "The Cat in the Hat," perhaps enjoyed "Cattus Petasatus" even more than I did. Not automatically looking to identify subject and verb, she giggled with delight at the new words that roll off the tongue with the catchy meter and bragged to my parents that she was able to speak Latin! Because the pictures are the same as the English, she was able to follow the storyline and give expression to the words. Whether as an introduction to Latin or an amusing twist of the Dr. Seuss classic, "Cattus Petasatus" is a wonderful variation that will make the reader and audience smile.

Subversive, disturbing, and brilliant

Dr. Seuss was one of those rare creative geniuses who both entertained us and challenged us to open our minds. "The Cat in the Hat" is an indispensable part of the Seuss canon. A bizarre blending of Seuss's trademark illustrations with an eerily Kafkaesque plot, "Cat" will delight both children and adults.The plot is simple: The narrator, a small boy, is left home on a rainy day with his sister Sally. But their boring day is interrupted by the Cat in the Hat, a weirdly anthropomorphic, talking feline who proceeds to turn their house into a chaotic playground. The illustrations--think Salvador Dali meets Beatrix Potter--are marvelous.This book is simple enough for beginning readers, yet full of subtle touches that could keep an army of literary critics and psychologists busy analyzing it for decades. And that is the brilliance of Dr. Seuss. Buy a copy of the book for your favorite child, buy a second for your favorite adult, and keep a third for yourself.

Have realistic expectations

This book is as cute as the English version in its story line--not in the flow of the language. Of course it doesn't SOUND as good as in English--it's a direct translation! It is entertaining nonethless and can make for great family bonding time in a bilingual household.

The Cat in the Hat Mentions in Our Blog

Published by Beth Clark • August 08, 2018

If the cat found buried with a human on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus is any indicator, humans have been fascinated by, obsessed with, and affectionately herding cats as pets for 9500 years. Cats started showing up in cave art around 1950 BC, so it's safe to say that humans and felines go way, waaay back.
