A wonderful, awful idea – reading the Grinch

He's hating the Whos

He’s hating the Whos

We read How the Grinch Stole Christmas! the other night as a family and it was pretty sweet; I enjoyed the Christmas special on TV growing up but couldn’t recall if I had ever read the book.

Now I have, and it was fun to read the story from its original perspective.

Having watched the aforementioned TV special enough to be able to practically quote it verbatim, the book seemed remarkably short (which is weird since its animated counterpart is only half an┬áhour long) – and the buildup to the heist didn’t seem as epic.

Still a good tale well told and one I was glad to read aloud.
