Generations of children have fallen in love with Horton the elephant! 

“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . .
An elephant’s faithful, one hundred per cent!”

Horton is kind and trustworthy, but unfortunately, the lazy bird Mayzie takes advantage of his good nature when she leaves Horton to watch her unhatched egg. 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. And don’t miss another delightful tale about this beloved pachyderm: Horton Hears a Who!

"Horton Hatches The Egg" is an absolute classic, and one of my favourites. Great rhythm, great story, great fun to read out loud.

A truly classic children's book, and even enjoyable for adults. A very happy book to read aloud in fifteen minutes.

The memorable tag line is in fact, "An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent."

Horton shows that kindness and loyalty can overcome all obstacles and that "An elephant's faithful, To the very end!"
