"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not," writes Dr. Seuss in this cautionary tale of greed and environmental destruction. Narrated by the villain of the story, the Once-ler, the tale recounts how the Lorax tried to save the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants from disaster at the hands of the insatiable factory owner. The Lorax's pleas are ignored and tragedy follows. A Dr. Seuss classic, it also serves as an ecological warning that still rings true today.
