To The Once-ler

74 Lerkim St
Truffala Place

Dear Once-ler,

Why are you being bossy? The animals need trees for homes and food. The next thing is why are you cutting down all the trees? People need oxygen and if people or animals don't have oxygen they will die and people will leave. The next thing is slow down your business as people do not need thneeds.The next thing is to stop being bossy and rude and you a being greedy as well.

Yours sincerely,


  1. Hello Adelei

    The Lorax is one of my favourite Dr Seuss stories. Your letter sent a very powerful and important message to the Lorax. Trees are very, very important.I hope he listens to you. You are working very hard on your writing.
    What other Dr Seuss stories have you read?
    From Mrs Hood

  2. I think the Once-ler needs to listen to you. We do need oxygen. Perhaps if he thinks about his family he will do the right thing.

  3. To Mrs Hood
    I've read Green Eggs and Ham, Oh The Places You'll Go, and The Cat in The Hat.
