Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the 1954 book, Horton Hears a Who!

Dr. Seuss had a fascination with animals that began when he was two years old and the family moved to the Fairfield Street house that would be Ted’s home until leaving for Dartmouth. From his open bedroom window, Ted could hear the night cries of animals at the Springfield Zoo in nearby Forest Park. It wouldn’t be long before excursions to the Zoo were a regular occurrence for Ted and his sketchpad—that’s when fascination turned to love.

In Horton Hatches the Egg (1940), the compassionate pachyderm named Horton was born. Then in 1954 with the publication of Horton Hears a Who!, this classic creature, with his soulful eyes skyrocketed into one of the most heroic children’s book characters of all time. To this day Horton remains a lasting symbol of equality, faithfulness, and humanity.

The impact of this book, as well as the 2008 emergence of Horton as an international film star, continue to instruct new generations of children with enduring messages as applicable to today’s anti-bullying campaign, as they are to the long revered values of honesty and loyalty.

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of this literary milestone, we announce the release of a very special print edition to commemorate Horton’s cultural impact.
