The Cat in the Hat – Dr. Seuss is a faithful reproduction of the classic analog version of one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, and what a reproduction it is!
It’s all here: the deceptively simple rhymes, the funny characters, and the “Mom’s coming!” drama. Plus now there are sound effects, simple animation, and funny voices.
Read it to yourself, have it read, or listen to auto-play. Touch story elements, and the words appear and fly across the screen. We loved the Cat’s mysterious accent—he sounded sort of like a cross between Sigmund Freud and Nathan Lane.
It’s a nice, long story that will take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to read, so you’ll get your money’s worth. This is without a doubt one of the best story apps in the App Store. If you like this, check out The Lorax too.
