What is 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' about?

The Grinch, once an orphaned child who received no love on Christmas, developed a cold heart that drove him high above the cozy town of Whoville where he remained year after year with his dog, Max. Angered by the town's Christmas celebrations, the Grinch ultimately disguises himself as Santa so he can destroy the town's presents, decorations, food and holiday cheer. It is the kindness of a child, Cindy Lou Who, that warms the heart of the Grinch and returns the magic of the season.
