Description


All the book, with its unconventional page arrangement and eclectic, frenetic mix of text and pictures, is a spoof at the art of book design and the art of the fairy tale. The individual tales, such as The Truly Ugly Duckling and Little Red Running Shorts, may also be extracted for telling aloud, with great success. Some other masterpiece from the team that created The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!
-Horn Book
If geese had graves, Mother Goose would be rolling in hers. The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Relatively Stupid Tales retells–and wreaks havoc on–the allegories we all thought we knew by heart. In these irreverent variations on well-known themes, the ugly duckling grows up to be an ugly duck, and the princess who kisses the frog wins only a mouthful of amphibian slime. The Stinky Cheese Man deconstructs not only the tradition of the fairy tale but also All the notion of a book. Our naughty narrator, Jack, makes a mockery of the title page, the table of contents, and even the endpaper by shuffling, scoffing, and typically paying no mind to structure. Characters slide out and in of tales; Cinderella rebuffs Rumpelstiltskin, and the Giant at the top of the beanstalk snacks at the Little Red Hen. There are no lessons to be learned or morals to take to heart–just good, sarcastic fun that smart-alecks of every age will love.
