Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kryssa Schemmerling
For generations of children, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without the Grinch -- the annual viewing of this animated favorite, based on Dr. Seuss's children's book and narrated in inimitable style by Boris Karloff, has become as much a part of the holidays as trimming the tree. The grumpy old Grinch, an anti-Santa with "a heart two sizes too small," decides to steal Christmas from the cheerful little inhabitants of Whoville, but discovers to his surprise that to the Whos, Christmas means more than just presents and holiday trappings. In HORTON HEARS A WHO, Horton the elephant champions tolerance when he defends Whoville, the tiny, alternative universe he finds inside a daisy. Bringing Dr. Seuss's singular images to animated life is no mean feat. But Chuck Jones, animator of such cartoon legends as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and the Road Runner, renders Dr. Seuss's eye-catching, tongue-twisting stories perfectly, creating a pair of animated classics with the visual and thematic depth to endure many joyful annual visits from children and adults alike.
