Bartholomew Cubbins gets a colorful new look!
This classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss features a foil cover and color-enhanced illustrations! 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 in Bartholomew and the Oobleck
—a Caldecott Honor Award-winner), and his unjust treatment at the hands of King Derwin. While The 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 in Yertle the Turtle
and Horton Hears a Who
); rivalry (as in The Sneetches
); and of course, zany good humor (as in The Cat in the Hat
and the 43 other books he wrote and illustrated)!
