The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins by Dr. Seuss

mzl.kqgltrlv.480x480-75The latest  interactive ombook from Oceanhouse Media features the plight of young Barthomomew Cubbins, another delightful story by Dr. Seuss in a growing Oceanhouse collection.

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?
