Hold your nose and hang onto your funny bone because coming in October is THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES based on the Caldecott honor book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. Join Jack the narrator, and a slew of wacky characters as they tell ridiculous stories including “The Princess and the Bowling Ball,” “Little Red Running Shorts,” “Cinderumpelstiltskin” and, of course, “The Stinky Cheese Man.” But along the way, Jack will have to deal with a couple of chickens who never know when to enter, a few unexpected songs (yes - it’s a musical comedy)—and a giant who wants nothing more than to get his revenge. Wild, irreverent and extremely funny!
