We are having fun now. This time Jon Scieszka decides to take many of the well-known fairy tales and write his own versions of them with his signature humor and zaniness. We all know the story of Cinderella and how she’s left at home while everyone else goes off to the ball. But did you know that Rumpelstiltskin showed up before the fairy godmother got there? How about “Jack and the Beanstalk”? Do you know how Jack tricked the Giant with the book endpapers? You may know the “Princess and the Pea,” but do you know the “Princess and the Bowling Ball”? Aha! This is a great collection that unfolds page by page. Humor, wit and adventure combine to make a great read aloud especially for those reluctant listeners. This book is a 1993 Caldecott Honor book.
