The ghastly Grinch refuses to be moved by the Christmas spirit in this must-have collectible slipcase edition of Dr Seuss's classic tale. With hilarious rhymes and distinctive, original illustrations, this classic seasonal story has become a favourite for good reason and teaches readers the true meaning of Christmas.

It is one of Rob Biddulph's favourite books:

To my mind the best children’s text ever written. It is just such fun to read aloud. The rhythm, the perfect rhyme, the humour. I didn’t ever mind when my daughter chose it, even if we’d read it every night that week! That’s when I knew that the stories I’d write would also rhyme, and that I would do my very best to be as precise as Dr S himself.

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.
