Join The Cat in the Hat as he spins a tale including Horton the elephant, who must protect Whos (denizens living on a speck of dust) while also guarding an abandoned egg recklessly left in his care by Mayzie La Bird. While guarding the Whos, we also learn the story of Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many "thinks" as well as many other characters created by the wonderful Dr. Seuss. Meanwhile, Horton is bullied, teased, and treated unkindly for his faith and beliefs by naysayers wanting him to give up his wards. With help from Gertrude McFuzz, who never loses faith in Horton, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant. Great toe-tappin’ tunes include “Oh, the Thinks You Can Think,” “Biggest Blame Fool,” and “How Lucky You are.”
