There's a small sensible social message along with the big nonsense here as Horton the elephant helps the "whos"- minute beings living in a rather perfect little society atop a dust particle. Placing the speck on a clover, Horton has a rough time when all the other animals, who can't hear "whos", condemn him for playing with dust. The day is nearly fatal, but the "whos" start shouting and the littlest "who's" yelp is the last blast that finally makes them heard. Silly rhymes and limpid pictures- those products of a wonderful imagination- make the story tops in excitement, too. Wonders will never Seuss! Good stitching.
