This was one if my favourite books as a child, and I was excited when I saw a 60th anniversary edition. It did not disappoint! The illustrations are amazing, vibrant colours and great quality. The story and all its rhyming and muddles is as always an absolute classic and will be enjoyed by all kids and adults alike. A national treasure!

The Cat in The Hat is simply a classic, fantastic illustrations, the most weird and wonderful rhyming it really does keep children and adults enthralled in the total and utter fabulous randomness of it.

This is a classic.  It never tires.  Children absolutely love hearing me read about the cat and all the troubles he gets into.  The rhyming is excellent and the children all join in on the parts they know.  It is taken out regularly from our school library and I would highly recommend this to any child from 5 years to 7 years.

There is nothing in this book that I did not like.  The characters were fun and kept you hooked.  Every child that I have read this for have asked to hear it again.

Perfect for my little one as she is in her first year of school. It's a fun story to read and we pointed out the rhyming words together (there's a lot!). The special edition makes it a lovely keepsake as I had this book as a child. Bright fun pictures and a lovely birthday card to colour in at the back

A classic book, and in my opinion a must for any decent children's bookshelf!  Thoroughly enjoyable to read aloud and to listen to.  my son (5 months) enjoyed the bold, black, red and white contrasting images and my daughter enjoyed the story of the naughty, messy cat!

This is a favourite in our house. My daughter loves the silliness and crazy imagination, it's such a fun story. Dr Seuss's''s wording is always fun to read and adds to their enjoyment of the story - my 1 year old just enjoys it as it sounds silly.

I wasn't too sure about getting the Dr Seuss books for my son as I wasn't sure if he would understand the stories, however, I was wrong! He loved the Cat in the Hat! The mischief the Cat in the Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2 got up to while mother was out and how the children worried about how they would explain to mother what had happened. A wonderful book.

This book was a favourite of mine and my son who's now eighteen has fond memories of it being read to him. My daughter really enjoyed this book too; she loves the chaos and mess caused. And kept asking will they get in to trouble! She giggled a lot and loved the fantastic rhyme and rhythm the story has.
The 60th anniversary book is larger than the other Dr Seuss books which is great as the text is larger too. My daughter loved the pull out birthday card in the back of the book which she coloured in and gave to me. I would  recommend this book, it's definitely a classic!

Leo loves this book! He enjoys the chaos that follows the arrival of the Cat in the Hat, and finds it funny when the fish gets cross with all the mess that he creates. One of the first things that he was drawn to with this 60th Birthday edition was the size - it's double that of his other Dr. Seuss books. It also includes a lovely little pull-out birthday card that can be coloured in or perhaps used to write on if being given as a gift. The rhyme and simple words in this classic story make it ideal for early readers and one that they'll want to enjoy over and over again.

This was one of my favs as a child, so it felt very special reading this to my son. The book is a classic -and has a brilliant use of rhyme. The characters are good and storyline is fab!
 
This special edition is lovely and big. The writing is large so it is good if your little ones are learning to read as there are many simple words in it too. 

Massive thumbs up from us.

This anniversary edition is a wonderful mix of nostalgia for me and a fantastic story for both of the boys. They love the mischief in the same way I did at their age. The rhythm of the writing and fantastic artwork make this a real favourite for joint bedtime reading.

Well this is the last of my collection of Dr Seuss books :(

I enjoyed this one, the return of the cat in the hat. The real villain in the book is mum, she leaves her two small children to clear all the snow whilst she saunters off into to town. So the cat comes along to help, he makes a mess, he uses his usual techniques to clean up but ends up just making a mess. So he gets the cat in his hat, cat A to help who then gets cat B to help and so on up to cat Z.

The book is fun and also finds time to teach the alphabet. Only issue I have was with the illustrations, not up to usual vividness.

Gonna have to go hunting for more of his books now.
