5.5

I remember loving these short parodies of classic fairy tale stories—a stinky cheese man in place of a gingerbread man or chicken licken instead of chicken little. The book is full of character and humor, like the table of contents falling all over the place, the interaction between the story characters and Jack (the narrator), and Jack’s endless, repetitive story to escape the giant, and the interruptions from the little red hen.
