The Cat in the Hat Knows a lot about Christmas!

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas!Sure to be a holiday favorite for the entire family for years to come, this adventure finds the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thinga-ma-jigger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals – from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs – and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home.   

In addition to the television special, a new online game called Freezeyouknees, Follow Me, Please! will debut on November 7 at http://pbskids.org/catinthehat/

And, The Cat in the Hat returns to print with a new series of Holiday tales based on the animated series. Random House Children’s Books has published a selection of accompanying titles in trade paperback, Golden Book, Step Into Reading and activity book formats including:

In A Reindeer's First Christmas, narrator Ralph – a yearling caribou – tells how, with the help of the Cat in the Hat, Sally, Nick, and some new friends, he makes it home in time for Christmas and pulls Santa's sled! In New Friends for Christmas, Sally and Nick learn that with a little help from family and friends – and a spare mini-Thinga-ma-jigger –it’s possible to accomplish almost anything! 

The Cat in the Hat has just received a special invitation! He and Sally and Nick have been invited to Mervin the Crab's Crab Christmas Ball on Christmas Island. But soon after the Thinga-ma-jigger lands on the island, chaos ensues when Crab Nine (aka Sandy) goes missing. Is Sandy lost or injured? Will the ball go on as planned?

A Step Into Reading adaptation, Home for Christmas is written for children who are ready to read independently. From the Cat in the Hat's Christmas Eve Party through his mishaps while attempting to return a young reindeer home in time to pull Santa's sled, readers will be introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water, a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances, and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs – all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how home is the best place to be for the holidays!

Get ready to ho, ho, ho, ho with Nick, Sally, and the Cat in the Hat! Based on the PBS KIDS show THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! and the upcoming Christmas Special, this yuletide Doodle Book invites kids to color and also to create fun holiday images.

With 48 pages to color and an entire sheet of hologramatic stickers, Christmas has never been so colorful and bright!
