This classic Seussian tale tells the story of the disgruntled Grinch and his fiendish attempts to steal Christmas from the citizens of Who-ville. With wacky rhymes and zany illustrations from the master himself, it has been a seasonal favourite with young readers for over 40 years.
As the second step in a major rebrand programme, HarperCollins is relaunching 10 more hilarious Dr. Seuss books, including such all-time favourites as ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’, ‘Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?’ and ‘Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book’. In response to consumer demand, the bright new cover designs incorporate much-needed guidance on reading levels, with standard paperbacks divided into three reading strands – Blue Back Books for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books for older, more fluent readers to enjoy.
‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas!’ belongs to the Yellow Back Book range. It has also been adapted for the big screen, and is now a blockbuster movie starring the irrepressible Jim Carrey.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!Review:
The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!The ghastly Grinch refuses to be moved by the Christmas spirit in this charming miniature gift version of Dr Seuss's classic tale.
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight
When he spies the citizens of Who-ville enjoying their Christmas preparations, the Grinch comes down from his cave and makes a dastardly attempt to take all the joy out of the occasion by actually stealing Christmas.
With zany rhymes and distinctive black and red illustrations, this classic seasonal story has become a favourite for good reason. In the end, the story of the ghastly Grinch has something to teach us all about the true meaning of Christmas. --Rachel Ediss
