An annotated edition Dr. Seuss' classic The Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.

A fun way to explore these classic children's picture books. Nel includes original sketches, notes ongoing motifs in Seuss' work and recycling of plot points, and explores the playing with language of which Seuss was so fond. Nel also has done considerable research and includes quotations from a multitude of academic works on these picture books. There are extensive end notes and references. Nel also includes two essays written by Seuss on the process of writing The Cat in the Hat. Interesting for those with fond memories of these picture books but also a useful academic work.
