Horton Hatches the Egg
by Dr. Seuss
Horton Hatches the Egg Lines 32-45 Summary
- Realizing that he "must weigh a ton" (36), Horton decides that his first plan of action is to reinforce the trunk of the nest-bearing tree.
- That done, he climbs up the tree—with utmost care—and parks himself gently on top of Mayzie's egg.
- And then he does the only thing there is to do when brooding an egg. He sits.
