- Featured in "Best iPad Apps of 2012" - iPad Insight
Kind-hearted Horton the elephant is persuaded to sit on an egg while its mother, the good-for-nothing bird lazy Maysie flutters off on a vacation. Horton is teased and taunted by his jungle friends, "How Absurd! Old Horton the Elephant thinks he's a bird!" He's captured by hunters, even placed in a traveling circus, but he keeps his promise and protects the egg. When runaway Maysie stumbles upon the traveling circus and demands her egg back, something incredible and unexpected occurs teaching children that virtue earns a reward!
"I meant what I said
And I said what I meant. . .
An elephant's faithful
One hundred per cent!"
