Sometimes fairly stupid stories are the best ones. If you’ve read lots of fairytales and thought the characters were annoying, or the endings too happy, then this is the book for you. Find out what the Little Red Hen is actually like (super annoying), and what really happens when you kiss a frog.

This is a collection of super short stories, which can be read individually for a quick gulp of comedy, or slugged down whole as Jack the Narrator tries desperately to keep things in order.

Like a cheeky squirrel pulling the rug from under Cinderella, The Stinky Cheese Man is the opposite of that bit in a Disney film where all their wishes come true.

The illustrations are beautiful, and even the text layouts add to the fairly stupid nature of everything. Perfect for glum days when you need something a bit sarcastic to balance all the glittery fairytales out there.
