The Cat in the Hat
by Dr. Seuss
The Cat in the Hat Lines 261-272 Summary
The Mother Walks Really, Really Slowly: Part 2
- At least part of the problem is solved: the Cat and the Things are gone.
- But what about the mess? As the fish astutely observes, "this mess is so big/ And so deep and so tall,/ We can not pick it up./ There is no way at all!" (269-272)
- Yep, it's a total catastrophe. Kind of reminds us of the post-wild rumpus house in Risky Business.
