The Cat in the Hat in English and French - Dr. Seuss Oh goody! The Amazon recommendation engine, which has now compiled an uncannily detailed map of all my reading preferences, has noticed that I like both children's books and books in French. It just mailed me to ask whether I had read The Cat in the Hat/Le Chat au Chapeau (Beginner Book).

Not only have I not read it, I didn't even know it existed! And turning to the relevant page, I find other interesting articles, like Eric Carle's La Chenille Qui Fait Des Trous and Easy French Storybook: Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Book + Audio CD): Boucle D'or et les Trois Ours.

Thank you Amazon!
