It is the second Seuss book to feature Horton the Elephant, the first being "Horton Hatches the Egg". The Whos would later make a reappearance in How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. The book tells the story of Horton the Elephant who, in the afternoon of May 15 while splashing in a pool located in the Jungle of Nool, hears a small speck of dust talking to him. Horton discovers that the speck of dust is actually a tiny planet, home to a little who community called Whoville, where the Whos live. The Whos become Horton's friends, and he tries to keep them from harm. People tease Horton because he is the only one who can hear the Whos. But Horton knows that they exist. That is how he comes up with his phrase that is heard all through the book: "A person's a person, no matter how small."
