The Lorax was Dr. Seuss‘ personal favorite of his children’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. “The Lorax,” he once explained, “came 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.”
