Here we are, once again
The silly cat, the silly grin
The same old cat, the same old hat
Who has the same routine down pat
It came upon a snowy day
The cat in hat decides to pay
A visit once again to those
Friends he had earlier chose
And oops! It's bath time for the kitty
But he leaves the tub so gritty
He must go and look for help to clean
Such a mess should not be seen
That silly cat! That gosh-darned hat!
I still don't know what's up with that!
Where did he come from, once again
Surely fun like this is a sin!
The mischief truly knows no bounds
When cats like this are hang-arounds
And I should know, I've got some now
But they never reach my hats, somehow
But surely we would welcome more
Of the fun we knew before
And Dr. Seuss, he did provide us
With more tails, er, tails hilarious
Huzzah that the cat, he did come back
and with the hat, not on the rack
but on his head, inside devising
situations not compromising
But always ending up in spirit
most jolly, happy, and we're near it
when we read the silly rhymes
remembering them in silly times
We'll never forget the cat's appearance
(from a book not usually on clearance)
And thus he comes again to renew
His friendship with me, and also with you.
After the success of 'The Cat in the Hat', who wouldn't want a sequel? The same Cat and the same children are matched again in this story, for new mischief and new adventures. Who would guess that such clever rhymes and language inventions could be done with such a limited vocabulary? It is the very simplicity and low number of vocabulary words that makes this and other Dr. Seuss books such wonderful learning aids for children. The whimsical versification makes them a delight for adults, too.
Children who are raised on Dr. Seuss never forget him. And the Cat in the Hat is central to the Dr. Seuss canon; it is surprising that this sequel is not better known.
The cat again, the hat again
No, I cannot find a one, not one!

La suite du très connu the Cat in the Hat de Dr Seuss, une histoire loufoque, des pirouettes de mots, un peu de supsens, une petite morale, de quoi distraire les petits (et pourquoi pas les plus grands).
