Description

"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 Dr. Seuss

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to his millions of fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, which included the creation of the one and only 'The Cat in the Hat', published in 1957, which went on to become the first of a successful range of early learning books known as Beginner Books.
