Horton Hatches the Egg Images

How It All Goes Down

Goofy, Much?
Horton looks so cute—and, yes, a little silly—on the book's cover.

Bye-Bye Mayzie
There's an app for Horton. In this app-style image, the first line of text is missing, some text is in red, and we get some bonus words draped across the illustration. Kind of trippy, if you ask us.

Horton Propping up the Tree
Another appified image. Check out how the colors are different than they are in the book. Here, the sky is unnaturally blue, instead of the minty-green it's supposed to be.

Animals, They're All Animals!
Here's half of the scene where Horton is taunted by his friends (with bonus Chinese subtitles!). Not cool, friends.

Give Us Your Lunch Money!
Horton's friends are really delighting in his suffering. The look on Horton's face is priceless. We want to give him a big ol' shmug.

Elephant-Bird to the Rescue
We could watch the elephant bird bursting from its shell all day long. Just look at those eyes.
