In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool,
He was splashing . . . enjoying the jungle’s great joys . . .
When Horton the elephant heard a small noise.
So Horton stopped splashing. He looked towards the sound.
“That’s funny,” thought Horton. “There’s no one around.”
Then he heard it again! Just a very faint yelp
As if some tiny person were calling for help.
“I’ll help you,” said Horton. “But who are you? Where?”
He looked and he looked. He could see nothing there
But a small speck of dust blowing past though the air.
In my very early years on Blogger, on this day of the week, I published a different series which was called "If its Tuesday, it must be tumblr."
Much of today's post was included in my May 15th 2012 blog post for that series but it bears repeating here as today is not just any Tuesday: Today, is May the 15th, an important day in the jungle of Nool, as evidenced in the text posted above written by Dr. Seuss, an author I have referred to a number of times here on Blogger.
And, if you aren't taking a trip to the jungle of Nool, here's a link to all of my posts on nybg's tumblr (that were written a number of years ago) they're really cool.
However, if you do decide to make a trip to The Jungle of Nool, you might want to consider taking copies of Cam's (Words In Our Beak) book series (pictured below) to read as you travel to Nool (it's a long trip).
