Reviewed by Kilmihil Children’s Book Club

This charming Dr Seuss classic is about the grumpy Grinch and his plan to steal Christmas.
The Grinch hates Christmas and hates to hear the noise, merriment and singing of the Who’s of the town of Whoville. He is determined to stop Christmas and disguises himself as Santa and his dog Max as a reindeer, and steals all the Who’s Christmas presents and food. But his plan doesn’t work out as he imagined. The Grinch finds out that Christmas arrives no matter what he does and learns how to enjoy the season.

The children would recommend this book as they enjoyed the humour and rhyme in it. They thought it is a good Christmas story. The book is suited to younger readers than those involved in the book group and some of the children found the story too short.

Rating: 7 out of 10.
