Celebrate the 75th birthday of this classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss with our new foil-covered, color-enhanced Anniversary Edition! 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 inBartholomew and the Oobleck
a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. WhileThe 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 inYertle the Turtle
and Horton Hears a Who
); rivalry (as in The Sneetches
); and of course, zany good humor (as inThe Cat in the Hat
and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)! Available for a limited time only, this is a perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans.
