Are you tired of the same old fairy tales? Then read "The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales." This book tells old fairy tales in a new modern way. There are such tales as "The Princess and the Bowling Ball," "Jack's Bean Problem," and my own favorite, "The Stinky Cheese Man." I know that once you read this book you will like the new fairy tales better than the old ones because the new ones are very, very funny!

My favorite character was the Stinky Cheese Man because he tricks everybody. I also like the illustrations very much because they are good and they help you see the sotry in your head.

I recommend this book to everyone. It is really funny and you will like the new and different fairy tales.
