Opinion

From Library Staff

This book is a Caldecott Honoree for its excellent illustrations. The print is actively part of the story and illustrations, and the stories are hilarious for both kids and adults, including bizarre and funny re-fashionings of tales like Chicken Licken and The Ugly Duckling.

These stories play with the conventional formats of popular fairy tales which kids love because it's unexpected. Very silly and definitely worth a read! It helps if you already know the stories that are being spoofed to get maximum enjoyment though.

Copied from "May I Bring a Friend": I realized that, if I go through the Caldecott Award Winners, I will find the myriad of books I read in my elementary school years - whether they were assigned, or reading circles, or just books that I checked out from the library. It doesn't matter - I can remember the cover and I have rediscovered so many books - and so many that I didn't know were even around when my mother was an elementary school student! What a great surprise! This has been fantastic, and a great trip down memory lane.

Bust-a-gut funny, but it has more of an impact if the kids already know the original stories to which it parodies. Read and loved by kids from 5-14 years old. One that stays in rotation in our house!
