For my picture book for older readers, I choose to read The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Stupid Fairy Tales. I remember reading this in library class when I was yougner, and I have to admit I enjoyed it a bit more then, than I did this time around.
Jon Scieszka puts a humorous, and pretty odd spin on some of the most popular fairy tails of all time. Throughout this entire book, Jack from Jack and the Bean stock is the narriator, who pops himself into almost every fairytail in some way or another. The author incorporated witty dialogue and hilarious twists to each tale. Some of the fairy tales he gave a twist too in the book included the gingerbread man, Jack and the Beanstock, Chicken Little, and Little Red Riding Hood.
My Favorite of the fairytales he twisted in this book were either Litle Red Running Shorts or The Princess and the Bowling Ball.
I would recomend this book to older kids, probably third grade or older.
