The Cat in the Hat may be fifty years old, but he, and Grinch, Horton, Lorax, Thing1, Thing2, are immortal:
In 1954, a magazine report speculated that one of the reasons for declining children’s literacy was that books like “Dick and Jane” were boring. Geisel took up the challenge and wrote Cat in the Hat using 220 words suitable for beginning readers. It didn’t thrill teachers, but became one of the most popular children’s books in history. He later wrote Green Eggs and Ham when someone challenged him to write a book using 50 words or less.
I remember The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins % Bartholomew and the Oobleck ( didn't check spelling ) from about then, more words used, and a story I liked at the time.
( While Seuss did a great job, I think the idea is often overdone. If you want kids to be stupid, treat them like they are. )
I used to have a account there, but now (i tried to check how it work at my end) it seems to be locked... I do not remember my password but RootAdmin can't send a restore-link to my email, even it is obviously in the DB (I can't create a new account with that email)

I don't use it actively either (nobody does that I can see) - to the point when I tried to log in it had an old password: I can;t even remember when I last changed my CP one, so it must be a few years now ...
I used to use it to let Chris know CP was down
