Happy Birthday "Cat In The Hat"

Fifty (50) years ago a masterpiece was born. The Cat In The Hat. Yep you all know it. Even if you're eighty your kids and grandkids probably encountered the mischievous cat. Here's some amazing stuff from this article.

But how many poets do you know who can sustain a book-length poem using a
vocabulary list of only 236 words—only one of them more than two syllables and
only 14 with two—and not make it look like a stunt?

Uhhh, Seuss? I guess that's it.

Just a thought.
