The Cat in the Hat


by Dr. Seuss

The Cat in the Hat Lines 192-217 Summary

Let the Wild Rumpus Begin!

  • The only thing Shmoop likes more than giant cats and paper hand fans is flying kites in the house.
  • Lucky for all of us, this is also one of Thing One and Thing Two's favorite games.
  • The fish isn't a fan—he's afraid of the mess factor. But the Things are already flying the kites by the time the fish can object.
  • Now we get a slight change of scene as the Things fly down the hallway, approaching the stairs. On their way, they knock pictures off the walls and overturn a vase on a table.
  • Sally and her brother watch them go—we're pretty sure they're as stunned as we are. And to top it off, Sally's dress gets caught on a kite string. 
  • Uh oh.
