A children's book by Dr. Seuss. The main character is a pink elephant named Horton. He is wading in a pool of water when suddenly he hears something! He hears a Who! Apparently there are a bunch of little people living on a speck of dust blowing by. Horton fears they will fall into the water and drown so he catches the speck and ever so gently places it on a clover. Horton is determined to protect them. A bunch of thuggish kangaroos surround Horton and harass him for his apparent craziness, listening to a clover plant. They set out to destroy the Who world and crush Horton's spirit in the process. But Horton remains determined and all the little Whos make as much noise as they can. But still the kangaroos cannot hear them. So a Who man grabs a small Who and tells him to yell. And finally the kangaroo hears the little Whos. And all is right with the world...
