The Lorax

Front Cover
HarperCollins Children's, 2009 - Board books - 24 pages
A new edition of the classic story from Dr Seuss's much loved The Lorax. Ideal for children learning to read on their own. "Mister!" he said with a sawdusty sneeze,"I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees." In this haunting fable about the dangers of destroying our forests and woodlands, the long-suffering Lorax struggles to save all the Truffula Trees from the wicked Once-ler's axe. A hilarious story with typical zany humour and silly rhymes, that packs a punch with its ecological message without feeling heavy-handed or worthy.
