Horton Hatches the Egg Lines 46-56 Summary

So This Is Why She Needs a Vacation

  • The first night of egg-sitting is no picnic. Mayzie, it seems, picked a perfect time to jump ship.
  • A rainstorm, complete with thunder and lightning, puts a big frown on Horton's face.
  • He wishes Mayzie would fly herself back, posthaste. But he's afraid she might have forgotten all about him.
