How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


by Dr. Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Lines 56-76 Summary

Santy Flaws

  • He fashions himself a Santa Claus (or as they call it in this book—a "Santy Claus") outfit and dresses his poor dog Max as a reindeer.
  • Uh oh. This can't be headed anywhere good.
  • Then he brings some empty bags with him on a sleigh and rides down into the village where all the Whos are sleeping peacefully.
  • Dun dun dun.
