Horton the elephant hears a voice on a speck of dust, and vows to protect the little creatures living there ("A person's a person, no matter how small"), but a "sour kangaroo" and other animals are determined to stamp them out. Horton has to convince the Whos to make a loud enough noise for the other animals to hear them - every voice counts. ( )
