From the Publisher
"Every Who down in Who-ville liked Christmas a
lot . . . but the Grinch, who lived just north of
Who-ville, did NOT!" Not since "'Twas the night before
Christmas" has the beginning of a Christmas tale been so instantly
recognizable. No holiday season is complete without the Grinch,
Max, Cindy-Lou, and all the residents of Who-ville, in
this heartwarming story about the effects of the Christmas spirit
on even the smallest and coldest of hearts. Like mistletoe, candy
canes, and caroling, the Grinch is a mainstay of the holidays, and
his story is the perfect gift for young and old.
From the Jacket
The Grinch, whose heart is two sizes too small, hates Who-ville''s holiday celebrations, and plans to steal all the presents to prevent Christmas from coming. To his amazement, Christmas comes anyway, and the Grinch discovers the true meaning of the holiday.
