Horton Hatches the Egg

Horton Hatches the Egg Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

Synopsis:

Poor Horton. He has to be the most put-upon pachyderm of all time. But no matter what foul fate awaits him, heroic Horton perseveres and, in the end, triumphs. And now the two books that introduced the kindly, brave elephant to the world—Horton Hatches the Egg and Horton Hears a Who!—are available together for the first time in a sturdy slipcase. A perfect gift for any person, no matter how small!

Dr. Seuss is quite simply the most beloved childrens book author in the world.

Synopsis:

It's the talk of the jungle when an elephant hatches an egg. Extravagant nonsense and rollicking verse.

About the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.  

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages.  Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
