The Stinky Cheese Man: And Other Fairly Stupid Tales - Jon Scieszka, Lane Smith


A very silly and humorous book.

I really liked the format of this book. It not only satirizes well-know fairy tales, it also satirizes what makes up a book. I really enjoyed how the Narrator interacted with the other characters.

The stories themselves were funny, but not much of stories in and of themselves. Most of them didn't really have a plot, which is the point. Because of this, I'd say this book is better suited for older children who can understand the parody. However, the pictures are very amusing, which younger children may enjoy.

A similar dark humor as found in The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. This is a fun read.
