3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


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 over 650 million 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.

Review by

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.

Review by

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 :)
