The Cat in the Hat, by Dr Seuss contains the following:
I do not like this said the fish as he lit. I do not like it, not one little bit.
What on earth does lit mean in this context?
A guess is that it means alighted, considering the fish has landed in the teapot.
Perhaps it's a typo?
Thanks to my 5-year old daughter for spotting this, somehow I never noticed it myself.
