How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
Louise Gikow (Trade Paperback)
Description: "Here is a digest-size novelization of the hip, live-action hit movie of the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, starring the one and only Jim Carrey as the Grinch.
The movie script goes beyond the events of the stolen Christmas, all the way back to the beginning in Who-ville--where the Grinch grew up--and explains how and why he came to hate Christmas so much that, finally, one year, he had to stop it from coming. Told in the first-person voice of the Grinch himself, this is rib-ticklingly funny, irreverent, and ultimately touching.
An eight-page full-color photo insert is included."
