In this book, the Big Bad Wolf (who asks to be called Al) recounts his version of what really happened in the story of The Three Little Pigs.
I admit it's for kids six years and older. My little guy was amused and said the wolf must be lying!
Another Scieszka book is THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES
If geese had graves, Mother Goose would be rolling in hers.
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales retells--and wreaks havoc on--the allegories we all thought we knew by heart. In these irreverent variations on well-known themes, the ugly duckling grows up to be an ugly duck, and the princess who kisses the frog wins only a mouthful of amphibian slime.
And last (but not least), is Scieszka's SQUIDS WILL BE SQUIDS.In this one, Jon makes up his own fables, and they are HYSTERICAL.
My son's favorite:
SKUNK, MUSK OX AND CABBAGE were sitting on the porch at Skunk's house.
Slowly but surely, the porch filled with a terrible smell.
"Whoa!" said Skunk. "Is that you, Musk Ox?"
Musk Ox shook his shaggy head.
"No way, Skunk. That's Cabbage."
"UH uh," Said Cabbage. "That's not me."
Musk Ox and Cabbage looked back at Skunk, who suddenly became very interested in tying his shoe.
MORAL OF THE STORY: HE WHO SMELT IT, DEALT IT!
So here's to you, Jon Scieszka! Keep bringing it!
