Author(s): Dr. Seuss
With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr Suess 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 bestseller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide. This book contains the following two titles: Horton Hears a Who: 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'! Horton Hatches the Egg: Everyone laughs when Horton the Elephant offers to sit on Mayzie bird's egg while she goes on holiday. Horton's kindness and faithfulness are sorely tested when he, and the egg, are kidnapped and sold to a circus but his reward for being faithful is more wonderful than he could ever have dreamed!
"Dr Seuss ingites a child's imagination with his mischevious characters and zany verses." The Express
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.
