I have loved the story of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" for as long as I can remember. I have never really expressed this to anyone and even my kids were surprised. I love how he goes from cruel to kind with the singing of a song. I watched it several times these past couple of weeks and I went and bought the book. I was surprised to discover that the book characters are not the same as the movie (they way they are drawn). So as the book characters were not the ones I wanted (I am so fickle), I went on a search of the net to locate the characters I wanted.
One of my favourite scenes is when Max becomes a reindeer. I remember thinking how mean and cruel the Grinch was to do this to his poor doggie. Now as a dog owner who insists that her dog wear antlers and bells and occasionally a Santa suit (snicker snicker) this scene brought a whole new meaning to me. I have a photo buried in my Archives of Ladybug wearing antlers so that is the photo that will go in when I finally locate it. I didn't put the words from the story about creating a reindeer on this one as I didn't want My Class attendees to feel stifled by the words, however I will when I am done.
