4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. R. Bird on April 23 2004
Format: Hardcover
Making use of every bookflap, endpaper, table of contents, flyleaf, and ISBN box, Jon Scieszka (go on...pronounce it) and Lane Smith teamed up to bring us the picture book that gives kids a lot more credit than most. Many adults will sit their little ones down with the same boring fairy tales with the same boring fairy tale lessons. Kids like fairy tales, no question, but kids also love the subversive. So if you hand them a book like, "The Stinky Cheese Man", that undermines everything fairy tales stand for, the children will fall on their knees in praise.
The book is a madcap collection of dismembered tales and stories. Didn't much care for the ending of the original "Ugly Duckling"? Well here's your chance to see the real (and realistic) finale to the tale. Think "Little Red Riding Hood" could be pepped up a bit by calling it, "Little Red Running Shorts"? Go wild. Scieszka is one of those rare authors that know exactly how to get little kids in stitches without resorting to the usual scatological humor and innuendo. This book is one wild ride. Characters frequently break through the fourth wall to confront the reader directly. There's a mixing and melding to the book, sometimes ending with the untimely demise of boring or annoying characters. I think it is safe to say that prior to reading this story, I had never had the pleasure of watching Foxy Loxy get pummeled by a book's Table of Contents. So thank you, Mr. Scieszka.
But thanking Scieszka without tipping one's hat to Lane Smith is like feeding bananas to buffalos. It just doesn't make sense. Smith is every bit up to the task of matching Scieszka feather to feather and foul to foul on this intrepid fairy tale adventure.

If you had this as a kid, you know you need it now. If you've never read it, its a good twist on some classic tales, and an interesting perspective for children and parent conversation at bed time.

Great for kids and adults. I loved this book as a kid! I tried to repurchase it now (from the Book Depository) to Canada. The item did not arrive and I chose not to have another sent because I had already waited about a month for it to arrive. Despite this, I have had other pleasant transactions for other books with this seller in the past.
The book itself is fantastic; I don't have kids, but I can easily tell parents that it is a book you won't mind reading to/with your kids because of how entertaining and witty it is.
I would also suggest pretty much any other book by this author.

Strongly recommend this book. I got it for my neice and nephew and they read it over and over again. Hilarious twist on classic childrens tales. Pictures are funny and storys have great flow. My brother wrote a paper on one of the stories for his childrens literature class in university and got great feed back from his professor. Recommend for children between 6-10 years of age. No real draw backs to think of. If you like this then also read the True Story of the 3 Little Pigs.

I purchased a book, sold as "used", and it was received in great shape. It was also shipped quite fast.

The stories are mixed up throughout the book, with the exception of "The Stinky Cheese Man". The title really does describe the other stories in the book "Fairly Stupid". The only story I may use in my classroom, which is very short, is "The Stinky Chees Man."

Bought it impulsively, based on a Tumblr post praising it, For my Mom. She said "Why would you get me such crap?" Mom is a passive type that never usually complains, lol. Matter of opinion possibly?
