500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, The

Dr. Seuss
The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins turns 75 in 2013, and to celebrate, we've created a foil-covered Anniversary Edition with a newly color-enhanced interior that would please even King Derwin himself! When the royal carriage approaches, young Bartholomew Cubbins removes his hat as is required by the haughty king. But as soon as Bartholomew does so, another hat appears on his head! This goes on and on, angering the king and frustrating his royal assistants until Bartholomew (quite literally) sheds 500 hats and almost loses his head! A delightfully strange story about an event that "just happened to happen and was not very likely to happen again," the 75th anniversary of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is likewise an event that won't happen again, and our 75th Anniversary Edition will be available for a limited time only at the regular edition price of $14.95. Dr. Seuss fans won't want to miss it!


As much of a Seuss fan as I am, this is one book I had not read until tonight when I read it to my son. Yes, it does not have his usual Seuss style we all grew to love, and yes, it is a long read. But, there is a great story in this book that was enjoyable for me to read and for my son to listen to. Even though it did not have a number of picture, while reading this book I could see the scenes in my head as I was reading it to my son. According to the copyright, it was written in 1938, and I can see how it was written for its time. It was written for children who gained their entertainment from listening to the radio, reading books, having books read to them, and using their imaginations when they played outside. Although this book is not the "traditional Seuss", I highly recommend this book.
