    Story
    "Christmas Classic to Share with Your Kids"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How the Grinch Stole Christmas to be better than the print version?

    It is certainly a fun one to listen to on audio.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We did listen in one sitting -- it is very short.


    Any additional comments?

    The audio isn't the best quality. And of course it is very short -- I wished it had been paired with other Christmas stories.

    But I assume most folks know what they are getting with the Grinch, and this recording could save parents of younger children from repeat readings!

    "THE WARM LIGHTED WINDOWS"

    BORIS KARLOFF AND WALTER MATTHAU
    As most people know, it is an excellent story. One all children should hear over and over. I grew up loving Walter Matthau, as most people my age have. I give the book and narration five stars, but I will have to admit that Boris Karloff, who did the cartoon in the 60's is a much better narrator. As there is not a Karloff addition offered, don't deny you children access to this great story and Matthau does a good job.

    "Grinch's voice"

    Wonderful classic Christmas story to listen to with children, but I don't like the Grinch's voice.

    "What a disappointment"

    Terrible narration, boring rendition. Don't waste your time on this. Not Walters best performance. I could read it better!

    "What's There Not to Like!?"

    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!
