Entitled: "Dr. Seuss (Ted Geisel) at work on a drawing of a grinch, the hero of his forthcoming book, 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas', 1957." How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is a children's story by Dr. Seuss written in rhymed verse with illustrations by the author published as a book by Random House in 1957. The book criticizes the commercialization of Christmas. It was voted one of the "Top 100 Picture Books" of all time in a 2012 poll by School Library Journal.
