"And he took off his hat - and it didn't do any good. Another hat sat on Bartholomew's head." In The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Dr. Seuss spins a humorous tale of a young boy's desperate attempt to remove his own hat to honor his King. If only the hat would obey Bartholomew's wishes!!! King Derwin of Didd demands "hats off to the King" when he passes by his citizens. But poor young Bartholomew Cubbins has a problem. Every time he removes his hat, another hat appears atop his head! Come along for the ride, as Bartholomew is whisked off to the royal throne room, summoned to the wise men, brought before the King's magicians and even shot at by bow and arrow. As the number of hats reaches 200...300...400, what will happen to Bartholomew at hat number 500?
