In September 1970, hoping to alleviate her husbands writers block and channel his frustration at the over-consumption he found in his community, Audrey Geisel suggested that they take a trip to East Africa. It was on this trip, after watching a herd of elephants walk across the African mountains of the Serengeti, that he found the inspiration to write The Lorax. Seuss wrote 90 percent of the book that afternoon on the only piece of paper he had within reach, a laundry list. As a tribute to her inspiration, he dedicated The Lorax to Audrey and her two daughters, Lark and Lea.
