The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

Written by Jon Scieszka and Illustrated by Lane Smith

A spoof on the art of book design and the art of the fairy tale. The individual tales, such as The Really Ugly Duckling and Little Red Running Shorts, can be extracted for telling aloud, with great success. Another masterpiece from the team that created The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! Characters highlighted include Chicken Little who wants to call the president to warn him about the sky falling in and the Stinky Cheese Man who thinks everyone is out to get him, unaware that they are trying to avoid him because of his nasty smell.
