"One of my fondest childhood memories is lying on my dad's chest as he read Dr. Seuss stories to me. He was the author I asked for at bedtime as a young child again and again. Seuss's books are unique, full of magic and wonder. They read like dreams come to life, and would make my imagination soar as I drifted off to sleep. 'The Cat in the Hat' is the masterpiece. It's funny, strange and utterly unforgettable." David Walliams
