11 cats in majestic hats celebrate the greatest children’s author of all time

Cats in hats. Congrats. Your day is complete!

Dr Suess is essentially the GOAT when it comes to younger fiction. His poetry and his imagination has stolen the hearts of thousands, if not millions, of readers. He created one of the most mischievous kitties in literature!
