The Cat in the Hat is a 1957 children’s book written and illustrated

The book was met with immediate critical and commercial success.

Three years after its debut, the book had already sold over a million
copies, and in 2001, Publishers Weekly listed the book at number

nine on its list of best-selling children’s books of all time. It was
adapted into a 1971 animated television special and a 2003 live-
action film
