Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: I could talk a bit about Dr. Seuss' mastery of verbal wordplay, or how he awakens the kid in all of us, but let's face it: he's just plain fun. And that has never been truer than when he is read here by Dustin Hoffman. With two collections of celebrity Seuss reads available, we had plenty of great choices, but Hoffman's endearingly persistent Horton earned him our vote. Give a listen and try not to smile. —Ed Walloga

- RiahWillow Daniels "One could say my tastes in books are nonsequators because I have no favorite author or genre. I hold over 300 books in my audible library"

Dustin Hoffman really brought this to life

I have always loved Dr Suess but wow i never really realized how vicious this book was. Dr Suess wrote about bullying before it became such a big problem in the US.

I loved the narration. my grandkids were invovled in it.
