Horton meant what he said when he promised the lazy Mayzie bird he’d watch her egg. Despite rains storms, snow storms, and even being sold to a circus and laughed at by both animals and people, Horton remains true to his word and sits on the egg through it all. The good-for-nothing Mayzie bird returns for her egg right when it’s about to hatch, and it looks as though all poor Horton’s work will go unappreciated. But when the egg hatches, what should come out but a very extraordinary bird with ears, trunk, and a tail just like Horton’s!
