The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

by Jon Scieszka
Illustrated by Lane Smith

Published by Viking, 1992
56 pages
ISBN: 0-670-84487-X
price: $16.00


The Really Ugly Duckling, The Tortoise and the Hair, Cinderumpelstiltskin, Little Red Running Shorts, Jack's Bean Problem, The Other Frog Prince, and The Princess and the Bowling Ball join the title story in a humorous unity of invention glued together by the comments of a somewhat hysterical Little Red Hen and Jack, a calm narrator. The overall design of this full-color book celebrates and demonstrates the role typography can play in conveying an idea. Many sizes and kinds of type explicitly express more than the words of these wacky, entertaining stories that are funny on their own but provide heartier chuckles for anyone familiar with the traditional tale inspiring each.
