236 words—only one of them more than two syllables

Anyone wanting to know just how an easy reader/picture book classic is made will be interested in seeing this Newsweek article about the upcoming Annotated Cat In the Hat. took him a year and a half to write and draw the book, an experience that he once described as like “being lost with a witch in a tunnel of love.”

I love seeing the sketches paired with the final illustrations.

(Thanks, Fuse. By the way, siding with the fish doesn't make a person bad or uptight. That loose cannon Cat is scary.)
