Trivia:

One night while riding home on a train, he saw a pompous, stuffy-looking man with a hat on his head. Seuss wondered what would happen if someone were to knock the hat off his head and then realized the man was so full of himself that another hat would probably appear on his head as a replacement. This inspired Seuss to write "The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins". See more »
