I don't know how many of you were 'priveleged' to take Latin in school. Looking back now, I never appreciated how much fun it was. I remember it well, 'Arma virumque cano troiae qui primus ab oris,' from Aeneid's Virgil. The passion of the language has long been lost. Until now. Thanks to innovative minds, latin has been unearthed through and can be found in the wondorous world of Dr. Seuss, via the Cat in the Hat (or, more appropriately, Cattus Petasatus). You know the story; however seeing the classic and masterful illustrations combined with the not-so-archaic text makes this delightful tale seem not so old-hat (no pun intended). If you have taken Latin in college, or you are one of those loo-loos who loves the language (like me), or you want to see Dr. Seuss in a whole new light, pick up Cattus Petasatus today.Was this review helpful?
