Meet Horton the elephant, one of the most commendable heroes in children’s books.
“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . .
An elephant’s faithful, one hundred per cent!”
Horton is kind and trustworthy, but unfortunately, the lazy bird Mayzie takes advantage of his good nature when she leaves Horton to watch her unhatched egg. Told with Dr. Seuss’s signature rhymes and trademark illustrations, this is a tale that will be enjoyed over and over, by reader and listener alike. And don’t miss another delightful tale about this beloved pachyderm: Horton Hears a Who!
