How the Grinch Stole Christmas! ★★★★★

How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Audio) - Dr. Seuss

Audio version via Audible. Having grown up listening to Boris Karloff's beautiful narration in the animated cartoon, Matthau's reading seemed strangely flat, although he really does a terrific reading. The story is still as enjoyable as ever, and listening to it helped my mean old Grinchy heart expand three sizes in one day.
