The Stinky Cheese Man and other fairly stupid tales by Jon Scieszka( Book )
52 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 5,557 libraries worldwide
From If geese had graves, Mother Goose would be rolling in hers. The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales retells - and wreaks havoc on - the allegories we all thought we knew by heart. In these irreverent variations on well-known themes, the ugly duckling grows up to be an ugly duck, and the princess who kisses the frog wins only a mouthful of amphibian slime. The Stinky Cheese Man deconstructs not only the tradition of the fairy tale but also the entire notion of a book. Our naughty narrator, Jack, makes a mockery of the title page, the table of contents, and even the endpaper by shuffling, scoffing, and generally paying no mind to structure. Characters slide in and out of tales; Cinderella rebuffs Rumpelstiltskin, and the Giant at the top of the beanstalk snacks on the Little Red Hen. There are no lessons to be learned or morals to take to heart - just good, sarcastic fun that smart-alecks of all ages will love. Contents include: - Chicken Licken - The Really Ugly duckling - The Tortoise and the Hare - Cinderumpelstiltskin - Little Red Running Shorts - Jack's Bean Problem - The Stinky Cheese Man

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! by Seuss( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 3,478 libraries worldwide
Book Description: Started by Dr. Seuss, finished by Jack Prelutsky, and illustrated by Lane Smith, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! is a joyous ode to individuality starring unsinkable teacher Miss Bonkers and the quirky Diffendoofer School (which must prove it has taught its students how to think--or have them sent to dreary Flobbertown). Included is an introduction by Dr. Seuss's longtime editor explaining how the book came to be and reproductions of Dr. Seuss's original pencil sketches and hand-printed notes for the book-a true find for all Seuss collectors! Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith pay homage to the Good Doctor in their own distinctive ways, the result of which is the union of three one-of-a-kind voices in a brand-new, completely original book that is greater than the sum of its parts
