    Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many books for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith).  In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called “Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. In 2008, Jon was named the country’s first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Children’s Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he acted as a spokesperson for children’s literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading. You can visit Jon online at www.jsworldwide.com.
    The entire book, with its unconventional page arrangement and eclectic, frenetic mix of text and picures, is a spoof on the art of book design and the art of the fairy tale. The individual tales, such as he Really Ugly Ducklingand ittle Red Running Shorts,can be extracted for telling aloud, with great success. Another masterpiece from the team that created The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!

    • The children were inspired to read this

      This really piqued every one's imagination. Not only did it use a naughty word on the cover, but it was filled with crazy tales.

    • Great

      This book is unique. Its very funny, for adults and little kids. I would recommend it to anyone. I work in a school and the kids love how goofy the stories are. Its a refreshing way to look at typical traditional folk tales.

    • Great kids book

      We received this book for our children from their aunt and they enjoyed it so much that we bought it for our niece. Because of the off-beat nature of this book, children recognize it as being different from the usual children's story books and find it humorous. The kids will enjoy hearing it as much as you will enjoy reading it to them.

    • Reminds me of childhood

      This book might not be something suitable for "teaching" kids something important, etc. I just bought this book because it reminds me of my childhood.
