The Cat in the Hat

By Dr. Seuss
Published by Random House, 1957
Poor Dick and Sally are sad, bored, and stuck in the house while their parents are out. When the Cat in the Hat shows up, chaos reigns until Dick and Sally finally oust him out the door. How will they clean up the disaster he has left behind? The Cat in the Hat has a solution for that, too.
