Dr. Seuss fans, it’s time to rejoice because a sequel to the 1957 classic children’s book “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” is coming soon! The new book, titled “How the Grinch Lost Christmas!,” takes place one year after the original story and teaches a valuable lesson about the true spirit of the holiday.
The book is written by Alastair Heim and illustrated by Aristides Ruiz, both of whom have previous experience in the Dr. Seuss universe. Heim said, “All throughout writing the story, I couldn’t fully believe that I was actually getting to play in the amazing creative sandbox Dr. Seuss created all those decades ago.” Ruiz, who has illustrated the Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library books for more than two decades, said that working on the Grinch sequel was an awesome responsibility.
In the original story, the Grinch tried to ruin Christmas for the people of Who-ville. However, after the Who’s gathered to sing on Christmas morning, the Grinch realized that the holiday is not just about toys and feasting, but also about joyously celebrating with family and neighbors. In the sequel, the Grinch wants to show how much he loves the holiday by winning Who-ville’s Christmas Crown with the most spectacular Christmas tree ever seen. However, when his plan goes awry, the Grinch turns into his old, cold-hearted self until his friend Cindy-Lou Who reminds him that Christmas is not all about winning.
