At the Guardian, she named a top ten list of funny books with pictures.

One title on the list:
The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss

Some books don't seem to date and Dr Seuss's books still look as fresh and bright and crazy as they did when they were first published. To be able to make children laugh while getting them to remember and learn stuff too is amazing.

The Cat in the Hat appears on Kate Kellaway's list of the 10 best illustrated children’s books.
