The Cat in Freud's Hat
Found a piece of paper in the yard apparently from a neighborhood kid's English assignment list on Lord of the Flies. One assignment option: You will create a PowerPoint presentation comparing the id, ego, and superego in Lord of the Flies and Dr. Seuss's The Cat and the Hat.
My observations: 1. We didn't have PowerPoint when I was in school (we had to use old-fashioned poster board for cool displays). 2. Why didn't they teach us there were Freudian concepts lurking in our Dr. Seuss books? 3. The book is The Cat in the Hat.
