Summary

Summary

This classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss features a foil cover and color-enhanced illustrations! As topical today as when it was first published in 1938, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is the story of a young peasant (the same as in Bartholomew and the Oobleck --a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. While The 500 Hats is one of Dr. Seuss's earliest and lesser known works, it is nevertheless totally Seussian and addresses subjects that we know the good doctor was passionate about throughout his life: the abuse of power (as in Yertle the Turtle and Horton Hears a Who ); rivalry (as in The Sneetches ); and of course, zany good humor (as in The Cat in the Hat and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)!

His other books included The Cat in the Hat, The Butter-Battle Book, The Lorax, The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories, Fox in Socks: Dr. Seuss's Book of Tongue Tanglers, What Pet Should I Get?, and Oh, the Places You'll Go.

Horn Book Review

When young Bartholomew takes his hat off before the king (as is the rule), another hat strangely takes its place. King Derwin is infuriated and sets out to teach "this impudent trickster" a lesson. This anniversary edition of the Seuss classic features "color-enhanced" illustrations. The richer colors add life to the lengthy tale. (c) Copyright 2013.
