How the grinch Stole Christmas, Dr. Seuss, Random House, New York, 1957, renewed 1985.
This is a classic. I watch the movie annually, but neglect the original story. I was surprised at some of the differences. In the book the Grinch talks of the singing but does not provide lyrics. I like the lyrics. However in the book we have the classic word, "Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store, Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little more." The book actually moves aster than the animated version as it is right to the point. However Little Cindy-Lou Who is in the book, although she looks so much more little. This book is worthy of being read many times.
