The enduring legacy of The Cat may lie in this simple idea: Rather than creating children’s books based upon following the rules, Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) flipped that premise with The Cat to create books that encouraged questioning the rules. Ted seemed to understand that the act of finding-your-voice is where innovation and inspiration are born. His Cat suggests this cannot be uncovered simply by following the status quo, but instead lies in the anticipation of what might be if we stop and question the world around us.
That anticipation is on full view in this pivotal image from Ted’s sequel, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back. Just as the rules are about to be broken (again) and the mayhem re-ignited, he reminds us to listen to our own voice and follow it as we prepare for our next journey with the Cat!
