Dr. Seuss meets Walter Matthau ... An irresistible combination. And a perfect listen for kids of all ages while dashing through the snow to Grandma's house!
I just love the story of How the Grinch stole Christmas. I would read it to my grandchildren every Christmas. When I found this one on audible and found out Walter Matthau was the narrator I jumped for joy. Now my grandchildren love his voice reading the story. They said grandma "we love the way you read too " but the narrator sound more like the Grinch. I agree I like his voice too.
I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.
Seuss is silly, Matthau is comical, together they present a great Christmas story with lots of emotion. I can't think of any other person to read this story. Delightful!
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
Yes as it was a great story of my childhood.
and his heart grew 3 sizes... breaks my heart every time seeing him go back to good.
While babysitting my young nephews I realized I needed a hand keeping them close while cooking, but with no one available for backup, Audible jumped to mind. I purchased, downloaded and played in two minutes this book that I played over and over and finished dinner with everybody safe accounted for and happy!
Never too late.
A Christmas Carol
Walter Matthau makes the story sound much more like a conversation rather than the performance of a poem.
Yes and my daughter and I do play it over & over.. She is 5 and just loves it.
Favorite Christmas Story
A Christmas Carol because it is about a grumpy old grouch finally getting the Christmas Spirit.
Who better to play an old Grinch than a Grumpy Old Man?!
Definitely, especially in front of the Christmas tree with some hot cocoa and cookies.
