Dr. Seuss, pseudonym for Theodor Seuss Geisel, is world renowned for his inventiveness and wit. His stories are instantly recognizable by their use of fantastic words, clever rhymes, and unusual creatures-drawn in his distinctive style.

My son is partial to this brand-new edition, but he cannot have it, it is all Mama's. It contains everything a Grinch addict like myself could possibly want, including info on his international appeal . . . details about the route Dr. Seuss . . . took in creating the Grinch (he wanted to combine Santa, his reindeer, the Stork, the Sandman and the Boogeyman - why mess around with so many characters when one would do?), and background on how Chuck Jones storyboarded the book. The old drawings are spectacular.

Written by uber-Seuss-ologist Charles D. Cohen, the essay features wonderful illustrations and all sorts of groovy Grinch memorabilia... A fun look behind the scenes of one of the all-time great children's classics. (A) [Highest rating]
Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Dr. Seuss’ Grinchy story has been a part of generations of Christmas celebrations. Although the animated version, narrated by monster movie legend Boris Karloff, is a delight to watch, there is something to be said for turning off the TV and curling up with your loved ones to read a good book. (The opportunity to create your own Grinch voice is just a bonus!) The story is a familiar combination of “bad boy learns a lesson” and “Christmas isn’t about the stuff but the substance” with a dose of Who cuteness added in. In short, it is timeless, and feels as relevant today as it must have when it was first put into print. The simple black-white-red printing does not detract from the story. As the holiday season approaches, you will want to be sure to have this classic story at hand to share with loved ones of all ages. It is sure to be a popular request for bedtime—or any time—reading. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green; Ages 2 to 10.

Meet the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and three Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 children's books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
