Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas
In Dr. As the Whos light their windows, hang their stockings, and trim their Christmas trees, the Grinch peers down his turned-up button-of-a-nose at the noise and happy festivities that Christmas brings. Then he hatches a plan. He can stop Christmas if he can figure a way to steal it. And what better way to steal it than to impersonate Santa? A thin, sour-puss-faced, red-eyed Santa.
The Grinch who stole Christmas has a reason for growing up to be so bitter. As a child, he was picked on for being green and having hair all over his body and a beard. Show me the child who would not pick on such a classmate and I will show you Baby Jesus. But if "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" had only worked on that angle some more, had drummed up a little more sympathy for the Grinch, maybe we wouldn't want to pick on him too. This is a movie that devotes enormous resources to the mistaken belief that children and their parents want to see a dank, eerie, weird movie about a sour creature who lives on top of a mountain of garbage, scares children, is mean to his dog, and steals everyone's Christmas presents.
The timeless Christmas classic from the iconic Dr. Read this favourite story of joy, love and acceptance anytime, anywhere!

Buy How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Share on:. Dr Seuss books are full of strange and wonderful creatures, drawn in his inimitable style and named thus. Cat in the Hat , Fox in Socks and Yertle the Turtle are all up there in the front or back benches of the children's Hall of Fame and Grinch is another of the Seussian amazing beasts worth knowing. I have to say I was rather reluctant at the first sight of the book: I had a vague memory of a long, boring and a rather terrible movie I was made to half-watch on the television during one family visit. Part of the "yellow back" Seuss series, designed for fluent readers, but also eminently suitable for reading aloud to younger children, Grinch has all the Seuss signature features: illustrations for which the word quirky must have been invented and the wonderful, energetic, confident, anarchic rhyme.
