The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins turns 75 in 2013, and to celebrate, we've created a foil-covered Anniversary Edition with a newly color-enhanced interior that would please even King Derwin himself! When the royal carriage approaches, young Bartholomew Cubbins removes his hat as is required by the haughty king. But as soon as Bartholomew does so, another hat appears on his head! This goes on and on, angering the king and frustrating his royal assistants until Bartholomew (quite literally) sheds 500 hats and almost loses his head! A delightfully strange story about an event that "just happened to happen and was not very likely to happen again," the 75th anniversary of The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins is likewise an event that won't happen again, and our 75th Anniversary Edition will be available for a limited time only at the regular edition price of $14.95. Dr. Seuss fans won't want to miss it!

Bartholomew Cubbins, who the book sets up as the complete opposite of the King wit...
Prose? By Dr. Seuss? Yep. And all the illustrations are black and white pencil sketches, with the exception of Bartholomew Cubbins' 500 hats, which stand out in bright red. It's an appropriate color scheme, seeing as Bartholomew's hat is the main protagonist in the story.Two picture books into his i...
Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!Dr. Seuss is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!
This book demonstrates that prose was not Dr. Seuss's strong point. I found this story to be overly wordy with so-so illustrations. The story was mildly amusing, but not particularly inspiring for me. Only recommended for die-hard Seuss fans. This is not one that I'll be adding to our collection.
