How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


by Dr. Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Lines 125-158 Summary

The Grump Climbs Crumpit 

  • But the Grinch doesn't stop there. No, he's got serious evil on the brain.
  • So what does he do next? He goes to each house in Who-ville and does the exact same thing.
  • He packs up everything—all the presents and feasts—in his sled and drags it up the side of Mt. Crumpit, where he plans to dump the whole load over the side of a cliff. Talk about bad behavior during the holidays.
  • Just then he hears a noise.
  • Assuming it's all the Whos, bawling their eyes out in despair at the total ruination of Christmas, the Grinch gleefully stops to listen.
  • But to the Grinch's surprise, the sound isn't a sea of sobs at all.
  • Instead, he hears the merry sound of all the Whos in Who-ville joining hands and singing together.
