Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review, Parents, January 2009:
"Through his efforts to save an invisible creature who lives on a speck of dust, the elephant in this Dr. Seuss classic displays kindness and determination–and provides plenty of laughs."
Children's Literature
AGERANGE: Ages 3 up.

Paper engineer David A. Carter has done a magnificent job with this much loved book. Every one of Dr. Seuss' famous words and familiar drawings is here, and Carter has made them pop-up! This is the story of Horton the elephant who thinks he hears voices coming from a piece of dust and, concentrating very hard, is able to hear what they are saying. There is an entire town of Whos living on the dust speck asking to be saved from harm. Horton very carefully places the dust speck on a daisy and attempts to carry it to safety. Other animals laugh and jeer because they do not believe him, but Horton is certain and because he believes that "a person's a person no matter how small," he overcomes all obstacles to save them. There are five large double-page pop-ups and three double-page spreads with additional lift-the-flap pop-ups, each carrying the story forward in the enchanted style of its originator, Dr. Suess. This book is a treat! Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

Meet the Author

David A. Carter is the author of 75 pop-up books, including the best-selling Bugs in a Box ® series that has sold more than 6 million copies. He is also the creator of the magnificent pop-ups One Red Dot and Two Blue. David lives with his wife and two daughters in Auburn, California.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.  

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages.  Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
