50th Anniversary of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"

"The Grinch At Mt Crumpet"

Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the 1957 book, "How the Grinch Stole Christmas"

Dr. Seuss felt people largely mistook The Grinch for the ultimate villain saying, "Can't they understand that the Grinch in my story is the Hero of Christmas? Sure, he starts out as a villain, but it's not how you start out that counts. It's what you are at the finish." This sentiment is what makes Dr. Seuss's unorthodox creature so memorable - in the end he became his best self, he became the Hero of Christmas, and The Grinch himself carved the "roast beef" -- Chase Art
