The Grinch Who Stole Christmas The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas.

The differences are that in the book, are the color of the Grinch, the Sleigh at the top of the mountain, and the age of Cindy Lu Who. The first contrast I found between the book and the movie was the color of the Grinch. In the book, the Grinch has no color and is black and white. In the movie, the Grinch is green.

Differences can also be in actions and what the actors say just like when Jesse and Winnie jump into the lake in the movie, and in the book Miles and Jesse jump into the lake, Jesse also tell Winnie the secret and Miles tells the story in detail instead of Mae, they didn’t discuss who takes Winnie to the lake, but in the book they do, the constable doesn’t go with the man in the yellow suit but Mr. Foster and his people do and on the other hand the constable went. Another Jesse never gives the bottle to Winnie but in the book he does, also the man in the yellow suit shoots Jesse with a gun and Jesse shows him he has everlasting life.

In the short story, “A Christmas Memory”, by Truman Capote, a boy relives his most memorable Christmas with his older cousin. During his story the old woman and him both develop strong developments.

A certain such example reveals itself early in the story, in which the narrator explains that his cousin calls him “Buddy, in memory of a boy who was formerly her best friend (Capote 1).”
