The Cat in the Hat was written and illustrated by Theodor Geisel under the pen name Dr. Seuss. Many early reviewers praised the book as an exciting way to learn to read, particularly compared to the primers available. Ellen Lewis Buell, in her review for The New York Times Book Review, noted the book's heavy use of one-syllable words and lively illustrations. She wrote, "Beginning readers and parents who have been helping them through the dreary activities of Dick and Jane and other primer characters are due for a happy surprise."  Today, The Cat In The Hat remains to be one of the most loved children's books and a staple for the home and classroom.
