I’m feeling a lot better now, thanks. Once I thought about it a little more, I realized that you never really stopped liking me. And that’s why I have to tell you, I love all my fans at Berthoud Elementary! Do you know that some of them even gave up their lunch recess once a week to hear the librarian read my story? Now that’s dedication! Of course, when the story is as good as mine, who wouldn’t want to skip recess to hear it?
There are other cat books out there, like The Cat in the Hat by some guy named Dr. Seuss. I hear it’s a pretty good story, but honestly, which would you rather read? A book called The Cat in the Hat or one called Flash, Feline Extraordinaire?
That’s what I thought.
So I’ve been thinking. I haven’t actually read The Cat in the Hat myself, but I can’t help but wonder where he got his idea. Because it occurred to me that my story has a cat and it also has a hat. Do you think he stole my storyline? The nerve of that guy!
Of course, I don’t wear the hat in my story, so maybe it’s completely different.
Oh. Dewey says The Cat in the Hat was published in 1957. Dewey’s the Information Officer on my team. He’s a library cat, so he knows all kinds of random information. Believe me, he can be kind of annoying sometimes.
Okay, okay, I’ll give them the link and they can look it up if they want. Dewey says to click on the orange words and you can go to Dr. Seuss’s official website.
He says he snooped through all Cindy’s books and she still has her copy from when she was a little kid. He showed me all these books she kept, plus a lot more. You can see they are pretty worn out, she must have read them a lot!
Dewey says maybe I should read The Cat in the Hat before I go spouting my mouth off about things I know nothing about.
I think Dewey should mind his own business. It’s not his turn yet, is it?
