Year 4 Literacy Class Review: The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales!

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, Puffin Books, 1993, $16.95

This is the best book I’ve ever read!!!! This book is full of REALLY funny modified fairy tales. You should read it!!!!!

My favourite part of the book was when Chicken Lichen thought the sky was falling but the table of contents fell instead!

The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales is an illustrated story.

The one disappointing thing about this book is that the way it is set out makes it a bit confusing.

The language used in this book is slightly funny and a bit rude.

The illustrations make the story funnier and the story would be pretty boring if the illustrations weren’t there. Anyway, people like illustrations.

I liked the entire book it makes people laugh and cheers sad people up, except the way it was set out made it a bit puzzling.

I think anyone would like this book but they would understand it better if they read some of the stories the book is based on.
