Poor Jack. He must use his wits to save himself from the terrible Giant, but a host of familiar fairytale characters keeps messing up his plans – and then there's that annoying Stinky Cheese Man! The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales deconstructs the tradition of the fairy tale. Characters slide in and out of stories, Cinderella rebuffs Rumpelstiltskin, and Goldilocks meets the Three Elephants. Nothing is quite the same as you remember it.
