Stories for Snuggling: The Stinky Cheese Man…

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka

This is a funny book that is a twist on the classic fairy tales. The princess kisses the frog only to end up with frog slime on her lips instead of a prince. The ugly duckling doesn’t grow up to be a beautiful swan, but an ugly duck. It’s fun to read and discuss the differences between this one and the classic. I also like that the narrator (Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk) talks about the structure of books, such as a title page, table of contents, etc. This is definitely a book for grade schoolers, and they get a kick out of it!
