Pop Smart - Xmas gag gift 2: The unedited text of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

In the spirit of holiday giving, PopSmart is proud to present to you the long-lost final passages of the original text of the classic children's book How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, before editorial tampering made it more commercial:

... Three thousand feet up! Up the side of Mt. Crumpit,

He rode with his load to the tiptop to dump it!

"Pooh-Pooh to the Whos!" he was grinch-ish-ly humming.

"They're finding out now that no Christmas is coming! "They're just waking up! I know just what they'll do! "Their mouths will hang open a minute or two

"Then the Whos down in Who-ville will all cry BOO-HOO!"

"That's a noise," grinned the Grinch,

"That I simply MUST hear!"

So he paused. And the Grinch put his hand to his ear.

And he did hear a sound rising over the snow.

It started in low. Then it started to grow ...

But the sound wasn't sad!

Why it sounded ... mad!
