About This Item

1963 TRUE 1st ed How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Dr Seuss Children Illustrated
True first edition of the Classic Christmas tale!
'How the Grinch Stole Christmas!' is one of the most iconic and well-recognized children's books of the 20th-century. Written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss, this book tells the story of the Grinch who tries to stop Christmas from arriving by stealing all the presents and food from the village, but much to his surprise it comes anyway. Could Christmas be more than presents?
'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' follows the concept of many Seuss books – perpetual rhyme schemes with nonsense words used to teach reading skills. It was published as a book by Random House in 1957 and, at approximately the same time, in an issue of Redbook. The book criticizes the commercialization of Christmas.
