The Lorax Summary

How It All Goes Down

The Lorax is the story of a boy who's looking for answers. Living in a ruined town, this little guy wants to know the story of the Lorax, so he goes to the Once-ler, an elderly inventor/manufacturer. Doc Brown—ahem, the Once-ler—tells the boy how the town came to be ruined, and most importantly, what he can do to turn things around.
