More Christmas Titles - Der Grinch

Note: this post was first published in 2007.

Have you seen the Grinch? Since The Cat in the Hat went out of print, this is one of the few Dr. Seuss titles in German remaining and a classic for Christmas. Oh, why didn't I stockpile Der Kater mit Hut when I had the chance? Oh well, at least we still have that stingy old Grinch to entertain. The translation is excellent and the rhyming is perfect.

An excerpt:

Der Grinch rief: "Hü hott!"

Dann ging's in die Tiefen

Zu den Häsern in der Stadt,

Wo die Hus friedlich schliefen.

Wie der Grinch Weihnachten gestohlen hat
