You may be shocked to hear this but I have never read the Grinch before. In fact, I haven’t really read many Dr Seuss books. The only one I can actually remember reading is Green Eggs And Ham. Dr Seuss just seemed to pass me by as a child (no idea how). But a few months ago, when I saw the trailer for the new film, I realised that I hadn’t ever read the book, so I thought that it was about time that I rectified it.

I ended up really liking this book. generally speaking, I don’t read picture books. I just don’t. I can’t actually remember the last time I did. And I had forgotten how fun they are. I found it strangely enjoyable to read something that rhymed. I actually ended up reading this out loud to myself, because I liked the way that it sounded. And yes, I am aware of how sad that sentence is. It was just fun to read.

And I liked the actual story as well. I knew the basics of it, I mean, I grew up watching the original film (fun fact, The Grinch used to terrify me. I had nightmares about him. Thanks Jim Carey!). But I didn’t know the exact details of it. I really liked it. it was short and festive and funny. It instantly put me in a festive mood. And I loved looking at the illustrations. It made the story that much better.

I think it is safe to say that I may be reading more picture books in future. It was really nice to explore a story that I grew up with

star 4.54.5 out of 5
