The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales
Let me tell ya, this book was all the rage at my grade school in the 90s. It was so much fun to revisit it - it's super funny and engaging, still a gem after all these years!
A revisionist storyteller provides his collection of hilarious parodies of children's favorite tales in this collection that includes "Little Red Running Shorts", "The Princess and the Bowling Ball", "Cinderumpelstilskin", and more!
The book has proved to be popular with children and adults, as its lighthearted approach creates interest while educating young readers about some of the features of books (such as title and contents) by poking fun at those conventions. A true introduction to a post-modern landscape.
