Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus

McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the

Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people

called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of

naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned

egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.

Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid

Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers

of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and

emerge triumphant!
