Mr. Grinch has a heart of “two sizes too smal” who lives in the cave at the top of snowy Mount Crumpit, bitter for the season that everyone in the town is excited all about, Christmas. He was so tired of hearing noises from WhoVille, the home of the blithesome and tenderhearted Whos, from singing and celebrating his hatest season with glee. To stop his annoyance, he decided to make a michievous plan in stealing the Christmas to cease the happiness around the town. He went down to the Whoville disguised as Santa Claus, together with his poor dog Max disguised as a reindeer, and stole all the presents. He met Cindy Lou, a little Who girl, who became a hindrance in his burglary. But he has successfully accomplished his plans, and pictured out the Whos to be bitter and anguished but contrary to his expectations which happened leaving him puzzled, full of questions like ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’. Mr. Grinch then found out true spirit of Christmas.
