Vera Violet Vinn is very very very awful on her violin.

This is a compilation book that contains The Cat In The Hat, The Cat In The Hat Comes Back and finally, Dr Seuss' ABC.

Now there are multiple ways of reviewing it, but firstly I'll start by taking each of these books separately.

The Cat In The Hat

This was Dr. Seuss' first book and I say it's pretty good. The art is fantastic and the colours are very well used. Now, in comparison toHow The Grinch Stole The Christmas this one falls pretty short

Dr. Seuss continues to ignite a love of words, story and laughter watching parents try to keep up with his good-natured tongue twisters and reassuring prose. Just think, before we had Dr. Seuss we could only "See Jane run. See Spot run. Jane and Spot run fast." Riveting for sure but lacking a little in the belly laughs department.

Three great Seuss classics in one: The Cat in the Hat, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, and Dr Seuss's ABC. I am delighted to add this to my collection for visiting children. The Cat in the Hat books feature a remarkably naughty cat who makes life chaos for the two children, but happily restores order before their mother comes home. Great fun.

Contains:

The Cat in the Hat, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back and Dr. Seuss' ABC.

Written in poetry, the kids love Dr. Seuss's books and these three are three of the best. The ABC is also instructional and fun.

If Dr. Seuss wrote it, I read it. I don't know how I'd have ever learned to read without ooblic.
