Once upon a time, a lonely little old woman decided to make a man out of stinky cheese. Wonderfully quirky, this book breathes new life into the traditional children's stories you thought you knew by heart.
Jon Scieszka introduces some really stupid off-the-wall fairy tales including: "Chicken Licken", "The Princess and the Bowling Ball"; "The Really Ugly Duckling", and "Jack's Bean Problem". Chosen by children as the Book of the Year for the Federation of Children's Book Groups, this book was described by "She magazine" as, 'The most delightful collection of stories a young cynic could hope to read'.
