Who are the Cat in the Hat Thing 1 and Thing 2?
In the popular children’s book “The Cat in the Hat,” Thing 1 and Thing 2 are a pair of mischievous twins who create chaos wherever they go. The two characters first appear when the Cat in the Hat brings them to the home of Sally and her brother, where they proceed to make a mess of the house.
Throughout the story, the pair cause havoc with their wild antics, but in the end, they help to clean up the mess they’ve made. While Thing 1 and Thing 2 may be troublemakers, their antics are ultimately harmless and even helpful at times. As a result, they remain some of the most beloved characters in children’s literature.
