Horton Hatches The Egg was written in the early '40's (by crackey) and it was one of my favorite books when I was growing up (clearly an ongoing process to this very day) and it was read to me many times by my Mom & Dad. Horton Hears a Who came along a lot later. I used to read it to my kids, but I didn't think it had the life-formative messages in it that Egg did...it was just cheap entertainment.
