about

The entire book, with its unconventional page arrangement and eclectic, frenetic mix of text and pictures, is a spoof on the art of book design and the art of the fairy tale. The individual tales, such as The Really Ugly Duckling and Little Red Running Shorts, can be extracted for telling aloud, with great success. Another masterpiece from the team that created The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting parody that I enjoyed as a child This is a parody of classic fairy tales like the Gingerbread Man and Little Red Riding Hood. It's quite funny and I enjoyed reading it as a child. I can't quite give it five stars because it is too disjointed for that, but I can heartily recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A charming book full of silliness and fun! This delightful book provides an example of alternative fairy tales. Children and adults alike will enjoy reading about the stinky cheese man's tales of adventure. I first bought this book for myself while in my second year of University. I have since bought countless copies to give away to friends and family. I do, however, disagree with the age rating (4-8) as I feel this is a wonderful book for children of all ages!
