The Cat in the Hat, was written by Dr. Seuss in 1957. It is the first appearance of the Cat in the Hat character who also appeared in four additional books: The Cat in the Hat Comes Back, The Cat in the Hat Song Book, The Cat’s Quizzer, and I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!.

The story is of two children and there cynical talking goldfish who are left alone in the house when their parents leave, it is raining so the kids are left inside with nothing to do. The Cat in the Hat comes along with thing one and thing two and proceeds to try and cheer up the children with a large amount of chaos resulting.

The book itself is considered an impressive feat of skill, this is because not only does it keep to a strict triple meter as well as small vocabulary, but it also tells an entertaining story in the process. Dr. Seuss claimed that it took him nearly 9 months to write this book as his editor required him to use a list of words no longer than 223 words. This list came from the sight vocabulary learning method used in the schools. Dr. Seuss himself never liked this method, as he preferred the phonics method, but wrote the books because he felt there were not enough entertaining stories being used to teach children.

The most obvious thing to note about The Cat in the Hat, is it’s immense popularity. It has been a treasured children’s story that even adults find enjoyable for more 5 decades. Not only that, but a major motion picture was released in 2003. Due to its vast popularity, timeless quality, and the large amount of material available, it is a fairly wonderful choice for the theme of a children’s party.
