I want my money back!!!I bought it as I was on the Kindle version page and it said it had a very high score, almost perfect. When I opened it in my Kindle Paperwhite, it came as 2 pages in 1. .. impossible to read. I have come back to the page and read the reviews. To my surprise, all reviews are mixed up. .. not only the Kindle version, but original movie, new movie, someone reading a book (tape recording), original books, fake books, second hand books, books with bubble gums inside or torn pages. What is this? Reviews should be separated to correspond the product you ARE buying. So if I wish to buy the Kindle version I should ONLY see the reviews for the Kindle version and nothing else. I will now contact customer support to get my money back. I have never been so disappointed with Amazon as last night. Update: Thanks, Amazon, for giving me credit (refund) for this purchase! Check it out!
Amazon.com Review He may be an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There’s another, hidden adventure, too: this book really will help children learn to read. With his simple and often single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was doing: hear it, learn it, read it–laughing all the way. The Cat in the Hat is a must for any child’s library.
The Cat in the Hat Hardcover – March 12, 1957 by Dr. Seuss (Author) Review
I was born and raised outside the US. Dr. Seuss was not part of my childhood, but I grew up in a household where books were serious business. I barely remember my toys as a kid, but I do vividly remember all my book collections, illustrations, textures. Both of my kids were born in the US and I read for them every single day. They are growing up hearing different stories then I did, and I am very much enjoying the ride with them. When I first read them a Dr. Seuss book I had mixed feelings. I honestly wasn’t very sure if I had liked it or not. But after reading a few books, it just grew in me. Dr. Seuss’ books are magical. There is something about them (their oddness, I presume?) that simply sticks to your mind. And most of them have a very nice hidden message among all the chaotic scenarios and crazy characters. Now Dr. Seuss is one of my favorite authors, and The Cat in The Hat my favorite character. This book is simply great for preschoolers and kindergartners (older kids too!). The rhymes and the humor are spot on. I had read it first at the library and end up buying it as a gift to another foreigner kid who wasn’t familiar with the story. It was a hit. -Read Reviews-
This Kindle version reproduces the original as two facing pages side-by-side on one Kindle page, resulting in text that is unreadable without a magnifying glass. The text-scaling tool will not work (because it is all one integrated image). It is useless as a resource to help our granddaughter with her reading. What a shame – fortunately we still have the well-worn original hardcover in glorious color.
