When the sun is not shining and your child is stuck in the house, make sure he is not playing with a mischievous talking cat. Instead, have your son or daughter don the Deluxe Cat in the Hat Costume. This officially licensed set includes a black bodysuit with white plush chest, red-and-white striped stovepipe hat and a red bowtie. In the classic Dr. Seuss story, the cat comes to the house where two siblings are sitting around very bored while their mother is out. Despite warnings from their fish, the children allow the cat in and he proceeds to wreak havoc. He balances on a ball holding many things, which then fall and break, except the fish who ends up in a pot. But he is able to clean everything up before the mother gets home and we are left to wonder if the children tell their mother what happened when she was out. Buy it for Halloween or Read across America Day, which is celebrated on Dr. Seuss's birthday.
