The Lorax was Dr. Seussâ€˜ personal favorite of his childrenâ€™s book. It chronicles the plight of the environmentand the Lorax, who speaks for the trees against the Once-ler. As in most Dr. Seuss works, most of the creatures mentioned are original to the book. What costume will you dream up?
The book is commonly recognized as a fable and a story Dr Seuss was able to create addressing economic and environmental issues without it being dull. â€œThe Lorax,â€ he once explained, â€œcame out of me being angry. In The Lorax I was out to attack what I think are evil things and let the chips fall where they might.â€
