    This kids book is, in my opinion, a nightmare quality horror story Why, you ask What s scary about a funny looking cat shudder Well, what s so scary about these cute thingsWell, there actually is nothing scary about that last one That still doesn t make it any less of a nightmare Sometimes I have nightmares where everything goes wrong, but I am helpless to do anything about it What s worse, the voice of reason is gone Well, that pretty much sums up the plot of this book As a h This kids book is, in my opinion, a nightmare quality horror story Why, you ask What s scary about a funny looking cat shudder Well, what s so scary about these cute thingsWell, there actually is nothing scary about that last one That still doesn t make it any less of a nightmare Sometimes I have nightmares where everything goes wrong, but I am helpless to do anything about it What s worse, the voice of reason is gone Well, that pretty much sums up the plot of this book As a horror story, it gets solid 3 stars Quick, somebody call Stephen King Two kids are left alone on a dreary rainy day which by the way is a perfect setting for a horror story Sidenote I am not that outraged with the mother leaving the kids unsupervised In Eastern Europe parents do it all the time And we survivedSuddenly a stranger barges in and insists that the kids join him in his games cue ominous music here And he refuses to leave Yeah, if this creature barged into my house, I d be curled up in a ball in a corner, wailing and wetting myself.The sentient fish, who appears to supervise the kids and is the sole voice of sanity here, sensibly protests He should not be here He should not be about He should not be here When your mother is outand immediately gets physically threatened and abused Terrified, it demands the abuse to stopThis is no fun at all Put me down I do NOT wish to falland narrowly avoids death Hilarious, right Not to mention that, for a fish, seeing a cat is like you answering the doorbell just to greet a Grim ReaperNext, the terrifying delinquent Cat unleashes Things perfect name for horror creatures who wreck havoc on the house Then the Cat cleans up and vanishes Basically there is zero evidence left of this horrific intrusion even if the kids tried to tell But likely the poor little victims will keep quiet And who knows what will happen the next time the Cat shows up, knowing there are no consequences shudder ominous music Nataliya keeps her light on at night to avoid nightmaresShould we tell her The things that went on there that dayYES YOU SHOULD, KIDS ALWAYS PLEASE DO TELL YOUR PARENTS Ok, enough about the story 1 star rating for lazy writing and lazy rhyming Apparently, the author spent months coming up with a long poem that is almost fully monosyllabic Here is the issue If children are old enough to read this long poem by themselves, they should be able to readthan a syllable at a time I know I did Let s not be condescending to kids they are capable of a lot if we give them the benefit of the doubt.Now, rhyming I guess you run out of words quickly if you are limited to single syllables but still need to maintain the poetry rhythm Still, it s not a justification for pathetic excuse of lines that go Cold, cold wet day , Sit Sit Sit Sit , We sat there we two , The sun is not sunny , Fun that is funny , So so so That is just lazy Just because the story is for kids does not mean it s okay for the writing to be subpar The story has enough exclamation points to drive you madAnd then something went BUMP How that bump made us jump We looked Then we saw him step in on the mat We looked And we saw him The Cat in the Hat To quote and take slightly out of context the great Terry Pratchett,Multiple exclamation marks are a sure sign of a diseased mindYeah Not a fan of this one Maybe it s because I am a few decades past the target audience Maybe it s because the book scares the bejeezus out of me 2 stars total for the horror potential which is higher than my initial 1 star rating, so yay Sorry, kids

    I like that at the end of this book, when the mother comes home and the text reads Should we tell her about itNow, what SHOULD we doWell What would YOU do If your mother asked YOU My daughter always looks up at me and says I would tell you But I don t believe her I think it s quite possible that the Cat in the Hat has already been here, and she s just telling me what I want to hear.

    Without a doubt one of the signature Seuss books THE SCHRODINGER S CAT IS OUT OF THE HAT He should not be here.

He should not be about, He should not be here, When your mother is out, It was a tale hard to rate,and I imagine how shocked must be for many of you, when you notice my 3 stars rate.Three stars For The Cat in the Hat The very tale that it s an emblem about Dr Seuss work Well, before calling the Zooks and Yooks to begin a war against me, let me explain my personal struggles with the tale.While I like to think that I still have a young heart, I can t deny that I am an adult, and sometimes my adult mode entered in high alert and suspicion we have a stranger adult person yes I know, he s a cat, but work with me who breaks into a private house without permission, and offering to children to play with his things , and while he cleans his mess most likely erasing any evidence to be used by the police , you are left uncertain if the kids will tell their mother about the whole incident inciting to lie to parents.I don t know you, but I found this quite creepy and I d be worried if that dang cat would be left alone with my children Yes, I know, it s Dr Seuss charming world of tales, and The Cat in the Hat would never harm a kid, but you wouldn t know that, if this would happen in our messy world, so I am left worrying about what kind of message can get kids out from this tale Trust in strangers with funny hats and don t tell truth to your parents Again, it s Dr Seuss and I am sure that he didn t want to give that message, but since The Cat in the Hat became such popular character loved by many, I wonder what was the expected role of this feline one when the story just got out.But just in case, my personal clear message is Kids Stay in school, don t do drugs and don t let strangers in your houses much less if you re alone and don t get up in their cars neither I can t getclear than that Geez A relevant fact is that Dr Seuss wrote this book as his first one to help kids to learn how to read, using only 223 words from the basic vocabulary used by children in the First Grade of Primary School.Yes, I know, I was unfair with this tale, but I couldn t deny my adult worries while reading it By the way, the fish is an unsung hero

    Seuss s most cynical political work describes the cycle of every generation first you hate the machine, then you rage against the machine, then you embrace the machine, then you become the machine.Sally and her brother, who, like Dostoevsky s sick man and Ralph Ellison s Invisible Man, will remain unnamed, join with the force of revolution, embodied by the Cat in the Hat Together they recruit agents of change and chaos the furious Things One and Two to dismantle the oppressive world built Seuss s most cynical political work describes the cycle of every generation first you hate the machine, then you rage against the machine, then you embrace the machine, then you become the machine.Sally and her brother, who, like Dostoevsky s sick man and Ralph Ellison s Invisible Man, will remain unnamed, join with the force of revolution, embodied by the Cat in the Hat Together they recruit agents of change and chaos the furious Things One and Two to dismantle the oppressive world built by their parents The ensuing freedom proves too much for them, though They turn against the Cat, and finally they capture and cage Things One and Two Meanwhile the Cat in the Hat literally becomes the machine His promise of anarchic freedom is a facade In fact he is an agent of stasis, and everything is put neatly back just as it was The revolution will be reset Sally and her brother have become what they rebelled against The idealism of another generation is crushed under the weight of convention And what will you do, when your mother asks you
