Based on the The Cat in the Hat movie (which is based on the original Dr. Seuss picture book, The Cat in the Hat ), this movie storybook is not so much watered down from the Seuss classic as hopped up. Scenes from the movie reveal that the bored little rainy-day girl is Sally Walden-a PDA-wielding tattletale. You know the story from here. It’s hard to say what the venerable Dr. Seuss would have thought of the transformation his original book underwent to become a movie (and storybook) for the new millennium.

My 3 year old grandson loves the movie and now the book. I don't care that it does not follow th plot in the original book - he looks at the pictures. He even reads it to himself when he goes to bed!

First, the disclaimer: I am an admirer of Dr. Seuss. Therefore, I expect anything that bears the great Theodor Seuss Geisel's name to be of high quality. The original cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, the one narrated by Boris Karloff, is an example. The recent movies, The Grinch and Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat, are not. The unfortunate authors of this book were building on a movie that in itself is a travesty; they should not have undertaken this most unfortunate project.
My daughter wanted to read the book, and I would rather she read a book than watch TV, even if the quality of the former mirrors the lack of that of the latter. First, this book bears little resemblance to The Cat in the Hat and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back; even the few quoted lines of Dr. Seuss's poetry seem stilted and out of place. The characters, nearly every one of them, are highly dislikable; like this retelling, they offer barely a redeeming quality. The story is told from the point of view of Conrad, the boy who with his sister, Sally, is stuck in the house on a dull, rainy day. Conrad could have written the story himself - the narration is pretentious and trite. While the original books were written more than four decades ago, their stories could have taken place yesterday. In this latest incarnation, the book's references to wide-screen TVs, Game Boys, and the like will seem laughingly out of date a mere five years from now!
The purveyors of the crass commercialization of Dr. Seuss's good name should be ashamed of themselves. I recommend readers to stick with magic of Dr. Seuss's poetry, which has inspired generations of people of all ages. This truly is a book you can put down.
MEGA FREEDY
This book was awful! Awful, awful, awful! No melody, no rhymes, non of the Seuss magic. I know that Ms. Fontes is not Dr. Seuss, but still. There has to be a better way to get the movie information to the kid. My daughter received this as a gift yesterday (along with the Cat, Thing One and Thing Two - who were quite cute). Both my husband and I read it to her but it was painful. Clumsy, stumbling verbage - much like my review! But hey, no one is paying me for this! The original Cat in the Hat is a joy to read - try that one instead. Sorry Justine...

YOU 3 BAD BOYS! LISTEN TO ME! PAY ATTENTION! I WILL NOT BE KIND IF YOU DISOBEY ME! STOP GIVING THIS 1 STAR! THIS BOOK IS NOT A CRAP!
I am a book headmaster, and this is what I say:
Sally and Bruce like this book and because of it, it gave me a different perspective of the first as an educational book.
It's great general kids and other students to watch it i guarantee you that.
OBEY THE HEADMASTER FOREVER AND CLICK "YES" UNDER MY REVIEW, YOU BAD BOY "NER DWELL OFFSPRINGS"!

"The Cat in the Hat" is a classic. The movie, with its sexual overtones, is like trying to sell me a "paint by numbers" copy of the Mona Lisa and telling me it is just as good. Instead of supplying the images of the characters, why can't we just leave the kids alone to use their imagination?
