Fun and Zany, but slightly annoying for adults
on 15 June 2011
The Cat in the Hat CD contains a number of classic stories from Dr.Seuss read by Adrian Edmonson (Best remembered as Vyvyan from the Young Ones). The stories are read well with enthusiasm and enjoyment. There are a lot of sound effects and noises which the children seem to enjoy but which can sometimes make it difficult to hear the words. Dr Suess has a very distinctive style with ryhmes and repetition, which the children like, but which I start to find annoying after a while. Already a firm favourite in the car my wife and I get bored with this before the children do. We normally insist they chose another CD after listening to this one for our sanity. In short - fantastic for kids but if you buy it think about where they are going to listen to it because its not so much fun for adults!
