Sally's stuffed bear Pammy the Panda is turning two, and Sally wants to give her a gift. But what kind of things do pandas like? Enter the Cat in the Hat. His friend Zhu Zhu is a real panda—he's bound to have some suggestions! So off the gang goes to Bamwamabooboo, where Zhu Zhu teaches them about his favorite thing in the world: bamboo! Turns out that bamboo is not only a panda's favorite food, but it's an amazingly strong, lightweight, and flexible kind of grass—like the stuff on your lawn—that's good for building all sorts of things that humans like, too. Almost as much as they like a bargain—like a $3.99 Little Golden Book!
About Tish Rabe
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seusss first children's book, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 childrens books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
