Which Dr. Seuss book was written as an allegory for US occupation of Japan after WWII?

Answer:

The Lorax

Horton Hears a Who! is a children's book written and illustrated by Theodor Seuss Geisel under the pen name Dr. Seuss. "A person's a person, no matter how small" is the most popular line from Horton Hears a Who! and also serves as the major moral theme of the book. Geisel, who had harbored strong anti-Japan sentiments during World War II, changed his views dramatically after the visiting postwar Japan and used this book as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of the country. Geisel strived to relay the message that the Japanese should be valued equally. He dedicated the book to a Japanese friend.
