A boxed set of all three Horton the Elephant stories!
Here in one sturdy slipcased set is the complete collection of all three books featuring Horton the Elephant—one of the most beloved Dr. Seuss characters and honorable heroes in children’s literature! Includes the very first Horton story,Horton Hatches the Egg, in which lazy bird Mayzie takes advantage of the elephant’s good nature when she leaves him to watch her unhatched egg; the comical classic Horton Hears a Who!, in which we discover that “a person’s a person, no matter how small”; and Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories, a collection of four magazine stories written by Dr. Seuss in the 1950s, including the title story, in which Horton makes a deal with an unscrupulous Kwuggerbug (who gets his comeuppance in the end). These stories entertain and inspire young readers while extolling the virtues and rewards of patience and loyalty. An ideal gift for birthdays, holidays, and happy occasions of all kinds, this is a collection the whole family will enjoy.
