The Thinga-ma-jigger Is Coming Today!

Whitney Sanderson
Illustrated by Ruth Sanderson

The Thinga-ma-jigger – you know it is coming, and it is coming today! The Cat in the Hat is back and he has brought Sally and Nick and Thing One and Thing Two and other characters too. Flick a switch and the jiggermawhizzer and you can zing around and bang with a ring-a-ding-dinging. However, do not stop there. There is a whole forest of jigamaroo and if you press the shrinkamadoodle – that is right, you will shrink! So much fun when you have shrunk you can actually dance with bees, and bounce on petals! There is a remedy for the shrinkamadoodle, let me see – oh yes, it is the bigamaboodle! Whodathunk! There may be a problem stopping, but surely, there is a toggle or boodle or whizzer of some kind that will fix that.

Dr. Seuss, welcome to TV. This Golden Book is based on part of, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! This story is typically a rolling bit of fun; make sure your tongue is fit and ready for the roller coaster of exercise typical to Dr. Seuss. Your youngsters will not let you put this one down. It is genuinely funny, whether you have access to the TV show or not. The illustrations are bright, fascinating, and even mercurial. You should buy this book even if you do not have small children; it is a treat to your inner child.
