Stinky Cheese Man!


I was restocking the children's department with stuffed toys when I found this guy.  It's the Stinky Cheese Man!  He's a character from a picture book of fractured fairy tales that was published when I was in second grade.   I loved it.  The stories were silly and stupid and so much fun. If I recall correctly, the authors (Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith) had a separate picture book that was a retelling of The Three Little Pigs.  Anyway, this is a terribly exciting discovery.
