Synopsis

Dr. Seuss The Lorax by Dr. Seuss

Mister! He said with a sawdusty sneeze, I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. The original eco warrior, the Lorax's message rings loud today. In this fable about the dangers of destroying forests, he tries to save the Truffula trees from the greedy Once-ler. Includes a CD performed by the hilarious Rik Mayall, with music and sound effects. The Lorax is a hilarious story full of Dr. Seuss's typical zany humour and silly rhymes, and its ecological message packs a punch without feeling heavy-handed or worthy. The Dr Seuss blend of zany pictures and unique rhyme, rhythm and repetition mean that all ages will love and learn from this wonderful book.

About the Author

Dr. Seuss

“I look at the world through the wrong end of a telescope.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of children learn to read.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a brewer and park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England (where he met his first wife Helen Palmer), he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children`s books and his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937.

His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books collectively known as Beginner Books. In all Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 children’s books during a career that spanned over 50 years, picking up numerous awards, including two Emmy awards for television and a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation along the way.
