What was the Lorax?
And why was it there?
And why was it lifted and taken somewhere
from the far end of town where the Grickle-grass grows?
The old Once-ler still lives here.
Ask him.  He knows.

In the dead of night, at the far end of town, a young boy decides to search around; he comes across the remains of the lifted Lorax and the old Once-ler lives.  He pays the fee and is told what the old Lorax was and why it was taken away.

Theodor Seuss Geisel or better know as Dr. Seuss (1904-1991) has written over forty children’s rhyming books.  The original Lorax was published in 1971 and even after his death his books are still being republished.  The Lorax is printed on earth-friendly, recycled paper and is known as the Lorax Project to save trees.

The art work and story line is amazing!  The rhymes are thoughtful and creative and I adored every minute of it!  The front cover is attractive and catches your eye as soon as you see it.  The illustrations are very colourful and are easy to see what is going on.  The text is the perfect size-not to big and not to small.  I was grabbed into the story line instantly and hypnotized by the colour work in front of me!  

I give The Lorax 5 earth-day stars.
