Sighed Mayzie, a lazy bird hatching an egg: "I'm tired and I'm bored and I've kinks in my leg from sitting, just sitting here day after day. It's WORK! How I hate it! I'd MUCH rather play! I'd take a vacation, fly off for a rest if I could find SOMEONE to stay on my nest! If I could find someone, I'd fly away--free..." (from the first line)
Illus. in color by the author. It's the talk of the jungle when an elephant hatches an egg. Extravagant nonsense and rollicking verse.

It's the talk of the jungle when an elephant hatches an egg. Extravagant nonsense and rollicking verse. Full-color illustrations.
Annotation:
Horton the elephant agrees to tend a lazy bird's egg, and he is not one to take his agreements lightly. He sits on the egg despite the taunts of his friends, foul weather, and even in the face of hunters' rifles. Finally, the egg hatches, but the hatchling is not what's ever come from an egg before! A Dr. Seuss classic.Mayzie is a flighty bird who just wants to have fun, so it's not that surprising that she finds sitting on an egg in her nest quite dull. Fed up with waiting for her egg to hatch, Mayzie longs for a vacation--but whom can she dupe into minding her egg while she searches for adventure? Luckily, Mayzie happens to meet the perfect egg-sitter: a loyal, sweet tempered elephant named Horton. After promising Horton that she'll be right back, Mayzie takes off--leaving poor Horton to sit on her egg through rain, snow, and sun. Teased by his friends, captured by hunters, and forced to appear in a traveling circus, Horton still manages to keep his word and faithfully mind the egg. A story of patience rewarded, HORTON HATCHES THE EGG shows both the positive and negative sides of keeping one's word. B&W illustrations, highlighted with bright greens and reds, accompany the text. Horton the elephant also appears in HORTON HEARS A WHO.
