What do you get when you take classic fairy tales and turn them on their head? According to The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, the Ugly Duckling grows up to be A Really Ugly Duck, Cinderella snubs Rumpelstiltskin, and the Princess kisses a frog only to end up with a mouthful of slime. Intertwined throughout the show, the zany takes on traditional fairy tales are sure to delight audiences of all ages. First published in 1992, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales quickly became a favorite family book. Featuring cheeky, fractured fairy tales by Jon Scieszka and vibrant, fantastical illustrations by Lane Smith, the book was designated as a Caldecott Honor Book in 1993.
