Horton Hears a Who! Lines 55-72 Summary

Chatting with a Little Friend

  • Whoa.
  • The speck has spoken.
  • That's right—the tiny little speck talks to Horton in its tiny little voice and tells him that the speck houses a whole town of people. 
  • It's called Who-ville, and Horton happens to be talking to the mayor of the place. Fancy.
  • Horton promises to keep them safe.
