Summary

Summary

Here is a quirky and refreshing new take on the traditional movie storybook. It's told from the point of view of the two slightly batty Old Biddies who lovingly raise the Grinch from the night of his arrival in Who-ville to the day he runs off to live in his cave on Mt. Crumpit. Organized as a photo album cum scrapbook, it tells the whole story of the Grinch's life, through still photos from the movie, extended captions, and running commentary. The Biddies' somewhat skewed take on events gives this very funny story an additional level of charm and laugh-out-loud wackiness.
