Can we really have fun that is funny? Pick up a copy of The Cat in the Hat and decide for yourself. Is this a political satire or a book about the fun of language and the exhilaration of breaking the rules. Theodore Seuss Giesel wrote these books as a response to the way Dick and Jane books had previously defined the way reading was taught in schools . The Cat in the Hat Books aimed to promote literacy by making reading fun and entertaining. Dr. Seuss's books can be read lyrically, politically or both - as the celebration of nonsense or as comments upon the then political climate. A timeless classic - Can we find a rebellious Cat in today's news?
There will always be a Cat in the Hat it seems!
