Synopsis

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Mini Edition by Dr. Seuss

This miniature hardback edition of Dr. Seuss's delightful festive tale makes a perfect stocking-filler or gift at Christmas. With a heart two sizes too small, the disgruntled Grinch is the meanest creature you'll ever meet. But when he hatches a dastardly plot to steal Christmas from the citizens of Who-ville, he's in for a big surprise! Now a blockbuster movie by Universal Pictures, starring the irrepressible Jim Carrey (of The Mask and The Trueman Story fame), directed by Ron Howard (Apollo 13 and Happy Days), and scripted by the writers of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The video is also available.

Reviews

'Twas the night before Christmas'

's story is not at all the same as the famous poem, the rhythm is, and it carries the reader merrily along telling the story of a Scrooge-like figure called 'the Grinch'

'because his heart was too small'. A moral story because, although the wicked Grinch steals every sign of Christmas - pudding, presents, tree and all - from the good people of Whoville, their spirit is unquenchable and the sounds of their merriment, even without presents, reach the bewildered Grinch. 'Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store - maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more,'

About the Author

Dr. Seuss

“I look at the world through the wrong end of a telescope.”

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of children learn to read.

Theodor Seuss Geisel – better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss – was born the son of a brewer and park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, in New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England (where he met his first wife Helen Palmer), he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children`s books and his first book And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street was published in 1937.

His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books collectively known as Beginner Books. In all Dr. Seuss wrote more than 40 children’s books during a career that spanned over 50 years, picking up numerous awards, including two Emmy awards for television and a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation along the way.
