The Lorax


This book was one of my husband's favourites when he was a child. It has become a favourite of our children in turn. And now I'm happy to be able to offer a Harper Collins paperback version through Spiral Garden.

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. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. This title is for older, more fluent readers to enjoy on their own, or as a wonderful read-aloud story for any age.

About the Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel -- better known to millions of his 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.
