Little Red Running Shorts

Much, much more! Come see what all the fun is about!
THE BEST KIDS BOOK EVER! My little sister got this when she was about 6. I got my own copy a couple of years later...of course, I was in my early 20's, but that's beside the point. I would recommend this book to anyone with young children, old children, no children...doesn't matter. Everyone should read this book.
From cover to cover one never knows what to expect. Pages are upside down and Jack the narrator seems to cause just as much trouble. The stories in the book poke fun at all of the traditional fairy tales we thought we thought we knew by heart. Everything from the way the text is laid out to the illustration screams craziness and havoc. This is a book for an adult to share with a child (it's a little much for a child without adult guidance- that is why it doesn't get more stars). A fun book for all!
The Stinky Cheese Man is a different take on the story of the gingerbread man. The poor Stinky Cheese Man runs away, but no one follows him. It is a silly story that brings laughter to my kids anytime I say Stinky Cheese Man.
