  • The Grinch hated Christmas The whole Christmas season Now, please don t ask why No one quite knows the reason Dr Seuss s small hearted Grinch ranks right up there with Scrooge when it comes to the crankiest, scowling holiday grumps of all time For 53 years, the Grinch has lived in a cave on the side of a mountain, looming above the Whos in Whoville The noisy holiday The Grinch hated Christmas The whole Christmas season Now, please don t ask why No one quite knows the reason Dr Seuss s small hearted Grinch ranks right up there with Scrooge when it comes to the crankiest, scowling holiday grumps of all time For 53 years, the Grinch has lived in a cave on the side of a mountain, looming above the Whos in Whoville The noisy holiday preparations and infernal singing of the happy little citizens below annoy him to no end The Grinch decides this frivolous merriment must stop His wonderful, awful idea is to don a Santa outfit, strap heavy antlers on his poor, quivering dog Max, construct a makeshift sleigh, head down to Whoville, and strip the chafingly cheerful Whos of their Yuletide glee once and for all.Looking quite out of place and very disturbing in his makeshift Santa get up, the Grinch slithers down chimneys with empty bags and stealing the Whos presents, their food, even the logs from their humble Who fires He takes the ramshackle sleigh to Mt Crumpit to dump it and waits to hear the sobs of the Whos when they wake up and discover the trappings of Christmas have disappeared Imagine the Whos dismay when they discover the evil doings of Grinch in his anti Santa guise But what is that sound It s not sobbing, but singing Children simultaneously adore and fear this triumphant, twisted Seussian testimonial to the undaunted cheerfulness of the Whos, the transcendent nature of joy, and of course, the growth potential of a heart that s two sizes too small This holiday classic is perfect for reading aloud to your favorite little Whos.

    How the Grinch Stole Christmas Nov , In the cartoon, the Grinch is the villain, a grumpy old hermit who is jealous of the Whos and their happiness The Whos, in the cartoon, are just simple, country townsfolk celebrating Christmas, and when the Grinch finds he cannot destroy Christmas, he knows he cannot make them suffer the absence he feels in his life, and finally understands the holiday spirit. The Grinch film How the Grinch Stole Christmas TV Movie Dec , The narration and voice of the Grinch are by Boris Karloff, a wonderful choice The music is clever, and the animation is excellent This classic certainly will withstand not only the test of time but also the competition of the live action version which is unfortunately an example of a big budget and tons of FX burying a sweet, touching, and simple story.

    • My all-time favorite Dr. Seuss' story!HOW THE GRINCH STOLE OUR HEARTS AND SOULSIt could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight,But I think that the most likely reason of allMay have been that his heart was too sizes too small,Okay, people, this is it! This is my favorite tale by Dr. Seuss, and I am quite certain that it must be the most popular and known of his works.

    • I probably watched this show about a million times and read the book as a kid at least as many and it was immensely pleasurable to share it with my kids. A wonderful story about the real spirit of giving and love. It might be my very favorite xmas story of all. An absolute must.


    • Book Review4+ stars to How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, a children's picture book, written in 1957 by Dr. Seuss. I adored this favorite as a child, and I still watch the cartoon ever year at Christmas. I've also seen the Jim Carrey movie and will watch that one, too. It's such a wonderful take of love and revengeMost folks who celebrate Christmas must have read or seen some version of this story at some point in their lives. If not, it's basically a grinch that wants to stop Christmas because he [...]


    • Come on Grinch,Don't be a spoilsport.I and my wife are surely reading to our little Who's when they are born.The undercurrent of the story presents to you a question as to not "How" but rather "Why" did the the Grinch stole the Christmas from the merry making Who people.Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lotBut the Grinch who lived just North of Whoville did not!The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.It could be, [...]


    • So lovely and positively brilliant. Just inspiring!My first book by Dr. Seuss, everyone!And now onto the movie!! Gosh I love Christmas. ❤❤


    • Of course it is a five star rating. How could it be less. I can pretty much say it by heart when I read it at Christmas time. It is always brought out, just like the Night Before Christmas.Those reading always takes center stage in our Christmas traditions. Once we read the book, we watch the original cartoon. sometimes we even watch the movie The Grinch to top off the perfectly Grinchy evening.


    • The perfect book. My nephew wanted to read this tonight. It's his favorite Christmas book. You can't beat it. The art is so creative and distinctive. The movies just use his art right out of the book.I'm glad this is still as popular as ever. It has a wonderful message also.


    • “All the windows were darkNo one knew he was hereAll the Who's were all dreamingSweet dreams without care…”I’ve always been aware of The Grinch for as long as I can remember but I’ve never actually read Dr Seuss’s classic, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Well, what better time to rectify that than in December, eh? I’m glad I now finally have but I found it a bit underwhelming.You probably know the story already but for those who don’t: a grumpy monster called The Grinch decides t [...]

    • Seventeen years ago, I've watched the movie adaptation of this classic children's story book. Both the movie and the book version are remarkable and excellent. I love how it shows that even those who have the heart of ice still have that soft side in them.



    • I didn't only read this to fill up my reading challenge. Nope. Not at all.But no seriously: The Grinch is one of my favourite Christmas movies. A secret you probably never knew: I'm the inspiration for the Grinch.Ok, just kidding, BUT: I love the illustrations & though I like the movie a bit more, it was still a cute little read, bringing closer the true meaning of christmas, for me, coming together as a family, being grateful for what we have & giving something back to others, no matter [...]


    • How can anyone not love Dr. Seuss or the Grinch? I grew up on the Christmas animated cartoon that always showed on T.V. and the book was just an added bonus to a wonderful story. I can still sing that song. A wonderful story and a great book to pass down through generations and a great way to start a family tradition of reading a story at Christmas time. Who says it always has to be the Night Before Christmas?


    • Whenever someone asks me if I celebrate Christmas and I'm about to be catty and say that I don't because I'm not a Christian, I wish an alert would sound in my ear and warn me not to be like Grinch. "Don't steal Christmas, Yulia. Don't do it!"


    • WoW! I Am Not A Christmas PersonMaybe Not Quite A Grinch Christmas To Me Is What Newman From Seinfeld Is To Jerry LOLWe Never Figure Out Why He Hates NewmanThis Book Has Always Made Me Smile And Will Melt Anyone's Grinch HeartThe Movie!! My One And Only Christmas Tradition


    • Εντάξει είπα να διαβάσω κάτι παιδικό χριστουγεννιάτικο να μου περάσει η γκρίνια και η ακεφιά και ερωτεύτηκα! Πόσο όμορφη,γλυκιά ιστορία!Σε βάζει αμέσως στο εορταστικό κλίμα και νιώθεις σαν να βρίσκεσαι μπροστά στο στολισμένο τζάκι ένα κρύο βράδυ και κάποιος σου διαβάζει α [...]


    • " Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The grinch got a wonderful, awful idea. "Not my first time reading it by any means, but just read it with my kids for a bedtime story. I forgot how the grinch is kinda my favorite Christmas related character :)


    • I've just now read this classic, a long way out of Christmas season, and discovered it was a lot more amusing than the film and the cartoon adaptations, which were until today my only sources of knowledge about the plot. It's much simpler than both, more focused on children, and devoid of the superfluous romantic elements the Jim Carrey film had. Definitely better! And with a clearer message.


    • Really enjoyed this book! The illustrations are really fun and I enjoyed the rhyme of the story. Overall a fun book. Reading this for the first time as an adult probably made it 4 instead of 5 stars. Still a very nice little Christmas read.


    • I cannot begin to guess how many times I have seen the 1966 animated television special to date, but when I was little, it was a once a year celebration. Something completely lost to this generation is the glory of anticipationlooking in the TV Guide to see when your holiday favorites would be on and then waiting seemingly FOREVER for the day to come, then asking your mom 10,000 times how much more time until 8 PM. This was gold, and after waiting all that time, you were all in. ALL IN! The tv s [...]



    • It was excellent. And I enjoyed the cartoon that showed on TV that was made from that book.


    • A wonderful children's book. The Grinch not being the kind of person you'd really want to spend time with when the story opens, learns that here is much more to Christmas, than just packages, bows, and ribbons, not to mention feasts and roast beasts.And the world would have been an infinitely better place had Ron Howard never gotten his hands on this story. Really.


    • WrensReads Review:So I don't really need to talk about how great this book is. That would be like me telling you how great any other great classic kid's story is. So what to say? I think this is a great story to realize you're a Grinch.It doesn't even have to be Christmas. Put in any other holiday. Valentine's Day: are you a "Single Awareness Day" person?Thanksgiving: are you a "Brown Thursday" person?Halloween: are you a "This is the Devil's Holiday" person?You get what I am getting at. Find yo [...]

    • What can I say I love this book!I don't feel I need to say much about the iconic Dr Seuss and his famous rhymes, but I love them, every time. (Uh oh I'm almost rhyming.)Thing I love most about this book is the message that Christmas doesn't come from a store, that it is something much more basic, important and beautiful. The other thing I love about the book is that there is still room left for enjoying presents and trees and decorations and singing.I've made this book part of two "Christmas kit [...]


    • Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meuPe Grinch îl știam din filmul în care Jim Carrey era verzui și se scălâmbăia cu răutate la oamenii care se bucurau de Crăciun din micul orășel de la poalele muntelui unde-și avea acesta grota.Ei bine, povestea lui Dr. Seuss este și mai faină. Este mai frumoasă pentru că mesajul îți ajunge mult mai direct la inimă și Grinch-ul devine mai ușor plăcut decât cel din film. Plus că desenele sunt de-a dreptul delicioase [...]
