How the Grinch Stole Christmas!


by Dr. Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Lines 77-99 Summary

The Sticky-Fingered Grinch 

  • While the Whos sleep on, the Grinch sneaks into a home through the chimney.
  • All sneaky-like, he begins loading his empty bags with their nicely wrapped Christmas gifts.
  • Oh how nasty of him, that Grinch!
  • But he doesn't stop there. The Grinch goes on to take their Christmas feast and the tree as well.
  • So you have to steal the gifts and the decoration, dude?
