Description: Horton the kindly elephant has his work cut out saving the tiny Whos who live on a speck of dust – no one else believes they are there! But Horton eventually convinces everyone that ‘A person’s a person, no matter how small’!

Being schooled in the leafy lanes of Surrey meant I didn’t come across Dr Seuss until adulthood. Enid Blyton and E Nesbit were the two authors in particular I remember from the young years. So, to oik my way out of sentimental meanderings I decided to watch Horton after reading this post from the sadly-missed-on-goodreads, Ceridwen.
