Synopsis

Synopsis

Inside this very special anniversary edition of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, you'll find the complete, original text and illustrations by Dr. Seuss, along with 32 fascinating pages of commentary, footnotes and archival images - written and compiled by renowned collector and Seuss scholar Charles D. Cohen. In chatty, conversational style, Cohen reflects upon Dr. Seuss's changing view of Christmas over the years and traces the evolution of the Grinch, his dog Max, and the inhabitants of Who-ville. Also together for the first time are three rarely seen Seuss holiday offerings: "Perfect Present," a poem about the fluff-footed, frizzle-topped, three-fingered Zift and why it makes the ideal gift; "The Hoobub and the Grinch," a story about a con artist Grinch who sells pieces of green string; and the spiritually compelling painting and poem "A Prayer for a Child."
