Celebrate the 75th birthday of this classic treatise on bullying by Dr. Seuss with our new foil-covered, color-enhanced Anniversary Edition! 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)! Available for a limited time only, this is a perfect way to introduce new readers to an old classic, or to reward existing fans.

It is more than 75 years old, and I think it was his first book. I know my parents read it to me, and then I read it when I was 5 or 6, and I'm 80 now. Still love it and am sharing it with first graders at 2 schools where I volunteer.

A classic. A modern fairytale. One of Dr Suess's first books.

Most people wear just one hat on their head at a time, but not Bartholomew Cubbins - a wacky read for children 4-9 years old.

Great story to read aloud to students; worked well for kindergarten classes, but it's pretty long for 1 period.
The pictures are mostly black and white, and sometimes difficult for the full class to see.

Not sure how this got overlooked in my childhood (and maybe I've just forgotten it) but this is a great story. No real moral to it, but funny nonetheless with nice expressive illustrations.
