The Stinky Cheese Man gives us an irreverent look at some of our favorite classic fairy tales. The Gingerbread Man is the Stinky Cheese Man, The Really Ugly Duckling just grows into a Really Ugly Duck, and Little Red Riding Shorts manages to outrun the wolf on the way to Grandma's. The book is a bit chaotic, but it's legitimately clever and witty, too.
Beloved by many generations of children, the Caldecott-winning story of Mrs. Mallard's search for a new home for her ducklings was chosen by American booksellers as one of the first inductees into the Picture Book Hall of Fame. The duckling family is immortalized in bronze statues in Boston's Public Garden, and duplicate statues can also be seen in a park in Moscow.
