Childrens' Books For Economists: The Grinch

Art Carden delivers what I think is an instant masterpiece in a retelling of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas." My favorite paragraph:

The Whos, with one voice crying out in the night

Screamed “bring back our stuff! You haven’t the right!

“We know that we’re noisy all through Christmas Day,

But if you don’t like it, it’s you who should pay!

“For we were here first, and homesteaded the rights

To sing, to make noise, and to hang Christmas lights

“The costs of our Christmas joy helped you to save!

They were fully reflected in the price of your cave!”

I was logging on to post this when I saw you beat me to it! "Instant classic" describes it well. Good work, Art!
