First published in 1958 - "The Cat in the Hat Comes Back" is a children's book written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel under the pen name Dr. Seuss. As of 2007, more than 10 million copies of The Cat in the Hat Comes Back have been printed, and it has been translated into more than 12 different languages, including Latin, under the title Cattus Petasatus.

The story centres around a tall, lean, anthropomorphic cat, who wears a red and white-striped hat and a red bow tie. One cold, snowy day the Cat shows up at the house of Sally and her brother, Dicky when their mother is away. Ignoring repeated objections from the children's fish, the Cat shows the children a few of his tricks in an attempt to entertain them.

Originally from Springfield, Massachusetts - Theodor Seuss Geisel (born March 2, 1904) was a cartoonist, and artist. He died in 1991 (at the age of 87) from cancer.

Works as a perfect companion to The Cat In The Hat, but a great story all of its own. Full of imagination and charm, and a good first reader, with rhythm to help them along.

When Sally and her brother are left at home on a snow day, the cat returns to cause more mischief and mayhem.

"...surpasses 'The Cat in the Hat'"? Hardly! I've found it much more tedious, repetitive and less fun than the original.

Kind of fun, but just be warned that the cat uses a toy gun to "shoot" the spots in the end.

Dr. Seuss's great achievements include early readers like this one, using only simple words yet conveying a highly original, witty, entertaining story. Superb--even if you already know how to read.

Dr. Seuss's ingenious narrative even surpasses "The Cat in the Hat".
