Dr. Seuss Statue, Who will speak for the missing Lorax? A 2-foot-tall, 300-pound bronze statue of the beloved children’s book character was stolen from Dr. Seuss’ California estate.
Audrey Geisel, the widow of famed children’s book author Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel), and her property manager, Carl Romero, noticed the sculpture was missing on Monday morning, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Footprints on the property suggested the thieves dragged the hefty statue to a nearby road, where they lifted it over a fence.
The statue featured the Lorax, a fantastical creature who speaks on behalf of the trees, holding out his arms while standing atop a stump with the word “Unless” written on it. The piece is valued at $10,000, according to the Los Angeles Times.
In Seuss’ 1971 book “The Lorax,” the creature warns about the consequences of chopping down all the Truffula trees. Once the last one is felled, he blasts off into the sky in despair, leaving behind a pile of rocks with the word “Unless.”
