FICTION
Released: Sept. 12, 1969

"This last is the only one that approaches the Seuss standard of zany inventiveness; the others merely lean on his name."
Wishy-washy Dr. Seuss; garishly illustrated, as the Cat in the Hat boasts "I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today," then dismisses them gradually until there's one left—and he'll have to wait until after lunch; his ancestors, the cats of Katzen-stein, discover that carrying each others' tails isn't democratic because there's always a last cat left out; his sister thinks up a "greenish, not too cleanish" Glunk who runs up the phone bill and won't go away until "We Un-thunk the Glunk together."
