Favorite of all time!

I first read this book almost 20 years ago. So cool to find it on Audible. The narration is great and the stories are hilarious. Must find the hardback. The pictures are unique and funny. Incredible book from my youth.

A fairly stupid, although very funny collection of stories for everyone to enjoy

If you like fairy tales, then you are sure to laugh out loud when you listen to Scieszka’s collection of fairly stupid tales.

I liked all the different voices Mike used in narrating the different stories and characters as well as Jack the Narrator. Some of my favorite chapters or stories include “The Princess and the Bowling Ball” and “Jack’s Bean Problem.”

Some of Jon Scieszka’s other books I also recommend you should read include The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, The Frog Prince...Continued and the Time Warp Trio series.
