The Lorax Project

Help the Lorax protect the forest and its creatures. For real.

Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden

Shmoop has been itching for a road trip. First, a walking tour of Dostoyevsky's St. Petersburg. Then on to Dr. Seuss's hometown for a tour of the sculpture garden. We can't wait to check out the sculpture of the Lorax.

Movie or TV Productions

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax (2012)

Starring Danny DeVito as the Lorax (too perfect), this version has our little boy fall in love with a little lady. Ah, Hollywood.

Same Movie, Different Link

We're linking you up to the IMDB page too, just to be on the safe side. Now would be a good time to mention that this movie came out as "an IMAX 3D Experience." If only we could get butterfly milk smell-o-vision.

Made for TV

Not as glitzy as the twenty-first century version, but this 1972 adaptation is definitely worth a Seuss night watch. (What, you don't have Seuss nights?)

Articles and Interviews

"Oh, The Economics You'll Find in Dr. Seuss"

Looks like even grownups are reading The Lorax. No offense to academics, but we like our own take better.

American Lorax in Paris

Did we mention that the 2012 film adaptation of The Lorax has some international flavor?

Lorax Heist

Two-feet tall, 300 pounds. Last seen at Dr. Seuss's estate.


3D Trees, What Everyone Needs

Check out the trailer for the 2012 movie. No 3D glasses required.

There's an App for That

Use this to entertain The Lorax lover in your life. It's an interactive version of the story, with optional audio.

And for That

This iPhone app features planet saving games set in the Lorax's world. Even though we hate to admit it, kids would probably be better at this than adults.

25 Minutes of Sheer Delight

Check out the 1971 TV movie of The Lorax. This one sticks pretty close to the book.


Happy 100, Dr. Seuss

NPR goes hard, throwing Dr. Seuss a huge birthday bash. Take a listen.


The Lorax

Shmoop wants this sculpture. It's huggably cute. (Don't worry, we didn't snatch it up.)

Dr. Seuss

Our guy's resemblance to the Cat in the Hat is seriously uncanny.
