Review by Greymowser
The only Dr. Seuss book I ever got to read when I was a kid. My mother disliked Seuss and he was not allowed among the many, many books I had. But with this one we had the record that went with it.

I think we all know by now "A person's a person, no matter how small!"Horton, the hero, runs around trying to save the little whos while everybody else, of course, derides him and even tries to harm the clover for no reason other than that they don't understand.There is a happy ending, and most children old enough to sit through it will enjoy it. As an adult, though, one thing keeps running through my mind, and that's the fact that the whos were in no danger at all UNTIL Horton decided to "save" them! I keep this thought to myself when reading to the nieces, though. I'm not sure they'd appreciate it :)
