Product Overview

Brilliant, playful and engaging, the charmingly simple story and expressive illustrations of "Horton Hears a Who!" have proven captivating to young readers for years. No matter how many times it''s read, once begun anew, the desire to see what happens next and how it all turns out is overwhelming. For this reason, "Horton Entend un Zou!" is the perfect tool for children learning to read French at a young age.
Thanks to the author''s use of simple sentences and basic vocabulary, "Horton Entend un Zou!" makes learning French easy as it tells the story of Dr. Seuss'' beloved elephant and his efforts to convince kangaroos, monkeys and a black-bottomed bird that a speck of dust is home to the "Whos of Whoville."
The story reaches a climax perfectly suited for Francophiles when the smallest "Who" in "Whoville" climbs to the top of the "Eiffelberg Tower" and shouts "Yopp" just loud enough that the other animals finally hear the "Whos" and at last believe Horton.

Author Info
Theodor Geisel is known and loved by millions by his pen name, Dr. Seuss. He used this name as he wanted to save Geisel for what he felt was his "true work"--his writing for adults. (Seuss is the author's middle name, the "Dr." a sarcastic salute to his never completed doctoral degree). Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Seuss graduated from Dartmouth College and attended Oxford University in pursuit of a Ph.D. in English Literature. At Oxford he was encouraged by a fellow student, Helen Palmer, to drop out and pursue a career as a cartoonist. Seuss took this woman quite seriously, for not only did he follow her advice, he also married her. Back in the United States, Seuss worked as an illustrator while still attempting to write serious fiction and humor for adults. His first book for children, AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET was published in 1937. The success of this work prompted him to produce more picture books for children until the onset of World War II, during which he and his wife wrote and produced films in support of the Allies. Two of these films HITLER LIVES and DESIGN FOR DEATH won Academy Awards for best documentary features. After the war, he returned to writing for children and, in 1957, THE CAT IN THE HAT was published. This book changed the face of beginning reader books from the basic primer to a story that was exciting and fun and was illustrated with lively artwork. With the success of THE CAT IN THE HAT, Seuss was named the head of Beginning Books, a subsidiary of his publishing company, Random House. This allowed him to not only create such classic works as ONE FISH, TWO FISH, RED FISH, BLUE FISH but also to establish the careers of such authors as P. D. Eastman and Robert Lopshire. Several of his works have been adapted as animated films, most memorably the holiday classic, HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS. During his long career, Dr. Seuss garnered many awards, including two Caldecott Honors for MCELLIGOT'S POOL and BARTHOLOMEW AND THE OOBLECK. In 1980, he was honored with the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for his body of work. He received a Pulitzer Prize for his contributions to children's literature, and when he died in 1991, he was the world's best-selling author of children's books.
