Description

This rhymed retelling of the hit PBS Kids holiday special The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas is bound to become a cherished keepsake. Written in a style reminiscent of Clement Moore's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, the book retells the story from the Cat's Christmas Eve Party through his various mishaps while attempting to return young reindeer Ralph home in time to pull Santa's sled. Along the way, readers are introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water; a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances; and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs--all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how being home for the holidays is the best place to be. A perfect gift for fans of the hit PBS Kids TV show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That --and an ideal choice for reading aloud--this is a book the whole family can enjoy together.
