The Cat In The... WTF?

I saw this book at our local church thrift shop. I suppose I could have purchased the book instead of taking a picture but then I would have just wound up donating it back to another thrift shop. Instead, we gave them $1.00 for 65 cents worth of merchandise and said, "Keep the change." Oh yeah, the thrift shop Gods were smiling upon us.

This wretched paperback is "a novelization with color photographs based on the motion picture."

Is it really necessary to write a novelization of a Doctor Seuss movie? You know, I hear the movie is based on an actual book... It's called The Cat In The Hat!

The title of the movie isn't "The Cat In The Hat Based On The Novel Push By Sapphire." It's The Cat In The Hat!

If your pre-teen is too old for Dr. Seuss books but just the right age for crappy Mike Myers movies then do his brain a favor and buy him Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm or National Velvet. Anything, anything but this piece of trash.

What's next? The Novelization With Color Pictures Of Harry Potter And the Sorcerer's Stone Based On The Motion Picture?

This is wrong on so many levels. It reminds me of my ill-advised purchase of John Tesh's covers of Mantovani's greatest hits.
