The Dr. Seuss classic that first introduced Horton the Elephant celebrates its 80th anniversary! The new matte finish cover makes it a perfect gift!
Beloved by generations for his kindness and loyalty, Horton the Elephant is one of the most iconic and honorable characters in children's literature--as well as the star of two books and a short story by Dr. Seuss (Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and "Horton and the Kwuggerbug.") In this book--the comic classic in which Horton utters the line "I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . . An elephant's faithful, one hundred per cent!"--we see his integrity rewarded with a surprise ending that will delight readers of all ages. 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. It makes a perfect gift for birthdays and holidays, and is ideal for sparking discussions about kindness, values, and loyalty. As timeless today as it was in 1940, a peel-off 80th-anniversary sticker on the front cover also makes it great for collectors!
