Horton the kindly elephant has his work cut out saving the tiny Whos who live on a speck of dust -- no one else believes they are there! But Horton eventually convinces everyone that 'A person's a person, no matter how small'! With a special jacket to tie-in with the brand new animated movie from 20th Century Fox. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years.
Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Dr. Seuss is a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide. To celebrate 20th Century Fox's brand new animated feature, HarperCollins is proud to publish one of Dr Seuss's best-loved books. This is a Yellow Back Book, for older, more fluent readers to enjoy.
About The Author
Theodore Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss -- was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book -- And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street -- was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat In The Hat, published in 1957, the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
