The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back


by Dr. Seuss

What’s Up With the Title?

The Cat in the Hat.

+ The Cat coming back

= The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

We could read into this more—Communism will never be wiped out! The Cat is a Red Menace! The cycle is never ending!—but we're going to go ahead and just call Seuss lazy on this one. Either that, or brilliant. After all, who wouldn't read the sequel to his most famous book of all time?
