Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Dr. Seuss now has a home in the Little Golden Books line! The youngest Seuss fans will love
this rollicking retelling, great for reading aloud.

Format: Hardcover
This is not the classic book by Doctor Seuss. Instead, it is an adaptation of the movie -- using some of the same characters in a compleltely different story. The Cat in the Hat is a great piece of literature, and it's unfortunate that many people will accidentally buy this pale imitation instead. They'll end up with a moronic sitcom instead of Dr. Seuss's masterpiece. The movie and all of the associated products are an insult to the legacy of Dr. Seuss. They preserve none of the spirit of Seuss's work, none of the magic and mystery of the world he created. They lack the flair for colorful language and poetic imagery that made Seuss great. The fact that this book even exists is enough to make me weep.

Deeply, bitterly ashamed. Poke out their eyes with sticks and wander the world in rags kind of shame.

By everyone involved, I don't just mean the so-called-writers, editors and executives who foisted this upon us. I also include the people who picked out the glue for the binding. The people who put this book into boxes, and who drove it to the stores, and who put it out for display are all culpable.

Not only is this is the worst book that's ever been published, it is the worst book that could ever BE published. Yes, this is the worst book in Borges' library.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd have reason to accuse "Little Golden Book" of rape, but here it is.

An abomination - not the real book, not the real author. The emovie was bad enough, but to make a book on top of that... Ugh!

Although the book is NOT Dr. Seuss, it is nice to look at and has a fun story. Chris Moroney did a great job of imitating the Doctor's style and little kids will enjoy it, especially if they liked the movie. Absolutely, you should get your kids the authentic Seuss first! But to compliment their library, this makes a fine addition.
