Publisher Summary

Generations of children have fallen in love with Horton the elephant! 

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!
