Looking for a Laugh? Snuggle up with Stinky Cheese Man!

Posted by on March 25, 2013.

Who doesn’t love to laugh? Laughter is something we as human beings cannot live without because it makes our lives and the world a better place. Sometimes it’s not easy to find something to make you laugh though; the lame jokes your coworkers make and coming home to your child’s “artwork” all over the walls isn’t very chuckle-inducing.

So the next time you’re looking for a laugh, come home from your humorless day, and snuggle down with your kid with this hilarious book: The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith.

When I was younger, I thought this book was the best thing since sliced bread. The weird, quirky illustrations and clever writing puts a new twist on fairy tales, and most importantly makes you laugh.

I have vivid memories of sitting down with either my mom or dad and flipping to a random page to see what fairy tale we would read. Would it be the one about the forever ugly duckling or the princess with the bowling ball under a hundred mattresses? Whatever it was it made us smile because of the sheer ridiculousness.

Jon Scieszka intertwines each story with the other one to make a funny, charming book that leaves the reader, or readers, chuckling.

Whether you’re looking for a chuckle, snortle, laugh, giggle, or snicker, this is the book for you. There are jokes for kids that will have them grinning ear to ear, and cleverly weaved in adult ones that will make you smile too.

So next time your boss puts you in a bad mood or your dog does his business on your grandmother’s rug (again), crack open this book and smile at the silly, stupid tales that lie within. And then you should go get some cleaner and paper towels because that “business” isn’t going to pick itself up.
