Much is often made of the illustrious Dr. Seuss’s whimsical writing but not enough attention given to his illustrations, which birthed a new style of art for children’s literature and stands on its own merits as art.
For Christmas, the story of Grinch seems fitting, this year in particular when, as an entire culture, we could stand with having our hearts grow three sizes larger.
Regrettably, I have to put this cover on the lower end of quality for the Seuss, but that’s still saying something since I give it a 7. I just wish the cover was a bit more reflective of the story within. The design of the Grinch is perfect no has become classic. I mean, what else would a Grinch look like?
The bright red cover accented by green at the Christmassy aspects of the tale, and the font is appropriately Seuss-y. And can we please talk about how great it is that there is an “!” in the full title?
