The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

Author: Jon Scieszka

Illustrator: Lane Smith

Published in 1992 by Viking Books

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales is composed of many short fairy tales… only not as we traditionally know them! This book is a highly entertaining collection of fractured fairy tales that are sure to make readers laugh. The unique book design, wordplay, and illustrations enhance the interesting twists on the plots and characters in some of our favorite classics. “Little Red Running Shorts,” “Cinderumpelstiltskin,” and, of course, “The Stinky Cheese Man” are only a few of the titles that will keep the audience engaged and constantly guessing what kind of silly twist is to come. This is fun, goofy, and great for readers who are looking for an unconventional book to keep them giggling.
