Step into reading with the Cat in the Hat in this leveled reader about animal tails based on an episode of the hit PBS Kids television show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! While playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Sally and Nick get to wondering: What would it be like to have a tail of their own? And how would you pick the best one? Enter the Cat in the Hat. To help the kids choose, he whisks them off to the jungle to see—and try on—a variety of tails that serve different purposes: A monkey's tail that is strong for holding onto branches; a quetzal's tail that is long and colorful for attracting a mate; and a rattlesnake's tail that makes sound as a warning. Written for children who are ready to read independently, this tale about tails is a fun, funny book that introduces kids to basic comparitive anatomy!
