The Lorax was first published in 1971. A film version will be released on March 2, 2012, which would have been Dr. Seuss' 108th birthday!
The Lorax is a creature who tries to protect wildlife and their environment against pollution and habitat destruction. The story is told with Dr. Seuss' familiar rhyming style and colorful illustrations and serves as a fable about the effects of industrialization on the natural world.
