What is The Grinch About?
Christmas is the best time to be living in Whoville - it's every Who's favorite time of year! However all the Christmas cheer in the world just isn't enough to get The Grinch into the festive spirit. Teased as a child, this green grump has grown to become a rather mean old man determined to ruin Christmas for each and every Who! Will the kindness of one tiny Who be enough to melt his icy heart?
