"A person's a person, no matter how small.”

The more Dr. Seuss books I read, the more I find to enjoy. "Horton Hears a Who!" works on so many level. In the most basic level, it's a story about a friendly elephant willing to go out of his way to help out others. And apparently this story was Theodor Geisel's way "to move beyond his feelings of animosity towards Japan, using this book as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of the country."

That last quote was from Wikipedia and it cited the following as reference: Minear, Richard H. (1999). Dr. Seuss Goes to War: The World War II Editorial Cartoons of Theodor Seuss Geisel. New York, New York: The New Press. ISBN 156584565X.
