Meet Mr. Mosquito, drawn from a Gypsy story. He's cantankerous and nasty enough to raise belly laughs along with the eyebrows of the polite. In a story inspired by Australian bush tales, we meet Ella and Bella, two hilarious (and flatulent) sisters. Angelina's earthy wit is memorialized in a story from Swahili tradition.

The eight stories in Rude Stories have roots from Jap

The book Rude Stories is rated 4 of 5 because its funny. The theme is for entertainment because they are filled with fake stories that could never happen. In story 1 a mosquito gets chicken wings, tail, and hands. Story 6 is about a fan that can make your bum bigger/smaller.
The theme is quite clever and should draw readers. In addition, the stories are very well told and entertaining. After reading the book, I immediately put the author's and illustrator's other compilation on hold. This one is highly recommended.
