Review

Poor Horton. Dr. Seuss''s kindly elephant is persuaded to sit on an egg while its mother, the good-for-nothing bird lazy Maysie, takes a break. Little does Horton know that Maysie is setting off for a permanent vacation in Palm Springs. He waits, and waits, never leaving his precarious branch, even through a freezing winter and a spring that''s punctuated by the insults of his friends. ("They taunted. They teased him. They yelled ''How Absurd! Old Horton the Elephant thinks he''s a bird!''") Further indignities await, but Horton has the patience of Job--from whose story this one clearly derives--and he is rewarded in the end by the surprise birth of... an elephant-bird. Horton Hatches the Egg contains some of Theodor Geisel''s most inspired verse and some of his best-ever illustrations, the dated style of which only accentuates their power and charm. A book no childhood should be without. (Ages 2 to 7) --Richard Farr

Short Desription

It''s the talk of the jungle when an elephant hatches an egg. Extravagant nonsense and rollicking verse.
