The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

by Dr. Seuss
 Table of Contents

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back Writing Style

A Rhyme-Along Read

It rhymes. The end.

Okay, not really. (About the end part—it actually does rhyme.)

But almost all of Seuss's masterpieces rhyme, so what's particular about this one? Well, Shmoopers, we'd like to tell you about a little thing we like to call the alphabet. It goes like this:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

(P.S. If ever there were a reminder that the keys on a keyboard are not in alphabetical order, that was it. Our first try looked like this: QWERTYUIOPASDFGHJKLZXCVBNM. Close enough?)

But we do have a point, we promise. This book may sound suspiciously like The Cat in the Hat, but there's an added bonus: help with your little one's ABCs.

And yes, that was our point.
