This is one of the best Christmas books every written. The Grinch tries to spoil Christmas for everyone in Who-ville by stealing all of the gifts. However, being the fool that he is, does not realize that Christmas is a spirit of togetherness and not defined by the giving and receipt of gifts. However, he does learn the error of his ways and at the end he joins in the festivities and is finally happy with his new good fortune. This is a classic Christmas tale that should be read and re-read by all children. All parents should enrich their children's lives by obtaining a copy for them.

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. But are you rotten enough to ruin Whoville's Christmas Whobilation this year, even after Cindy Lou Who nominates you to be the Cheermeister of the event? Based on Dr. Seuss's wacky and wonderful classic picture book,How the Grinch Stole Christmasand the motion picture screenplay of the same name, this novelization elaborates on the story of a holiday gone awry. Little Cindy Lou Who, her cheerfully dopey dad, Lou Lou Who, her semi-delinquent teenage brothers Stu and Drew Lou Who, the Martha Stewartesque Martha May Whovier, and the nastiest, most cynical, evil-hearted Grinch around star in this Christmas comedy. Seventeen color photos from the film are included. (Ages 8 to 12)--Emilie Coulter--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
