Horton Hatches the Egg
by Dr. Seuss
Horton Hatches the Egg Lines 151-170 Summary
Sold to The Circus
- Horton just can't catch a break.
- In New York, a circus immediately buys him.
- Still sitting on the egg, in the tree, Horton is paraded all over the U.S., the butt of one big joke.
- Where's the love, y'all?
- Sure, he's sad. Who would want that life? But he only becomes more faithful as time passes. He's not leaving that egg no matter what.
