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.

4.0 The Stinky Cheese Man
A postmodern deconstruction of fairy tales for 6 year olds. Its quite clever and well done. The stories are all deconstructed in this picturebook. The narrator is a character. The stories all merge with one another. And so on. Clever and good, and the art is very pleasing.

I cannot put into words how much I love this book. I remember discovering it after The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, but I come back to this book not because of the strength of its stories (let’s face it, they are humorous but little more than worth a few chuckles) but because of how meta the...
