    ITF Read & Watch: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957 book, 1966 animation, & 2000 film)

    You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch. You really are a heel. You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel. You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel. You're a monster. Your heart's an empty hole. Your brain is full of spiders, you've got garlic in your soul. I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine and a half foot pole!


    Topics: The fascinating life of Dr. Suess, the surprising inspiration for the Grinch, the Chuck Jones animation connection, Jim Carrey’s over-the-top performance, the fever-dream style of Ron Howard’s film, “big lesbian energy,” and the role of Max the dog.
