Quote #7

…And they sent him home
One hundred per cent! (216)

Ah, the sweet, final lines of Horton. But wait a second—the accompanying illustrations show Horton's friends all happy and approval-giving. Last we saw these guys, they were laughing at Horton and making fun of him. Now that he's got that cool elephant-bird, though, he's their best friend again. Hmmm. Do they owe Horton an apology? Will they turn on him again if things get rough? How do they compare with the circus audiences in their reaction to Horton?
