** spoiler alert ** Amiable elephant Horton discovers another planet, Who-ville, living on a
speck hears a voice coming from a clover flower. Asked by the Who-ville mayor to protect his world, Horton seeks out the perfect place for the clover in his vast jungle. In doing so, Horton is ridiculed for talking to a speck of dust, then caged. The Whos must come together to make enough noise for the jungle to hear them, proving that they do, in
fact, exist. An allegorical story following World War II, Horton Hears a Who! reminds its readers that ‘a person is a person, no matter how small.’
