The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Siesta and illustrated by Lane Smith is a collection of funny, modern, and interesting new takes on classic children’s stories and fairy tales. From new versions of fairy tales such as The Gingerbread Man and The Ugly Duckling it is sure to have you and your kids laughing and rethinking everything they thought they knew (about fairy tales that is). This book has won several awards such as a Caldecott Honor, and New York Times Notable Book of the Year. With 56 pages, this is collection of hilarious stories that you won’t want to put down. I would recommend this story to all ages but specifically to children 3 and older and to children who love fairy tales and anything funny. This silly modern take on classic tales is sure to have you giggling.
