Horton Hears A Who (as 70's Thriller)


How psyched would you be if you pulled this slim paperback off the musty shelf of a used bookstore?

From the back cover:
This taut psychological thriller from bestselling author Theodor Geisel is the second installment of his acclaimed Horton series. As the book opens, we once again find Detective Horton waking from a weeklong bender. The sun is piercing, his head is pounding in his ears, and even the dust sounds like it's talking to him. As the day goes on, Horton realizes that he can't shake the voices in his head. Horton can't tell if he is psychic or psychotic, but he follows the voices and embarks upon a mind-bending journey. His feverish dedication leads him to social ridicule, lands him in jail, and threatens to leave his sanity in tatters.

"In the bizarre tradition that includes both Dashiell Hammett and Philip K. Dick, Giesel breaks new ground." -The New Yorker

"Destined to become a cult classic." -The San Francisco Chronicle

"Beware the Sour Kangaroo." -Rolling Stone

I really enjoyed visiting your website. I have a fun website that revolves around the topics of children's books, reading and literature yet is focused on the lovable characters from my children's book series Danny the Dragon. It's always a pleasure to connect up with like-minded individuals and websites that share similar interests, and with that in mind I'd love to connect up. I review other child-related issues and books at my blog as well as have radio interviews posted at: http://DannyTheDragon.com/blog and http://DannyTheDragon.com Also, if we agree, would you be interested in reciprocating links on our sites? The ideas are limitless when it comes to connecting up. Thanks Tina http://TinaTurbin.com

I think you should write a book called Beware the Sour Kangaroo.

Kate: should it be a picture book or a lit crit book?
