Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horton Hears a Who!

Horton the Elephant hears a cry for help from a speck of dust and tries to protect the tiny creatures who live on it from the other animals. When his friends accuse him of imagining things Horton persuades the Whos to make as much noise as possible to prove they do indeed exist. Academy Award®-winner Dustin Hoffman's masterful narration, along with original music and sound effects, brings to life the heartwarming tale of Horton the elephant.

Horton Hatches the Egg

Horton is persuaded to sit on an egg whiles its mother, Maysie, takes a break. What Horton doesn't know is that Maysie is setting off for a permanent vacation in Palm Springs. He waits, and waits some more, through a freezing winter and a spring filled with insults from his friends. When the egg finally hatches everyone is in for a surprise.

Thidwick, The Big-Hearted Moose

This classic Seuss take features Thidwick, a happy-looking moose from Lake Winna-Bango with incredible antlers and a kind heart. Everyone takes advantage of his generosity and soon he has most of the other animals nesting on the top of his head. Will anyone take pity on him, or will he be able to cross the lake to rejoin the herd before winter?

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.
