Scieszka and illustrator Lane Smith are unparalleled in their eccentricity and unrelenting in their boyish, twisted-yet-innocent zeal. In co-creations from The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales to The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs to Math Curse, Scieszka's wacko sense of humor and Smith's quirky, always gorgeous artwork thrillingly congeal in Molly Leach's creative, exuberant design. We see many picture books that are better suited for adults than kids, but this fine specimen is truly meant for goofballs of all ages. (Click to see a sample spread.

The colorful illustrations by Lane Smith add just the right touch to compliment each fable.
I enjoy allowing my son to read some things for the pure pleasure and pure fun of reading...this is a perfect choice for that.
I have six children ranging in age from 4 to 16 and each one of us loves this book for different reasons.
I got this book for a friend with two boys, ages 5 and 7. Neither boy "gets" the humor yet, but I think they will in a year or two. Read morePublished 8 months ago by J. Blair

This one is great. Read more

Interesting pictures that my four year old loved and also the funny morales, especially "He who smelt it, dealt it." I heard that over and over for weeks.Published on February 6, 2011 by Tleath123
Both my 13 year old son and I thoroughly enjoy reading Squids Will Be Squids, but I feel that the book should be geared for a higher age range. Read morePublished on December 1, 2010 by Naomi
I don't really understand the reviews here: firstly, who says that "children's books" are only for children? If you (the adult) enjoyed it, seems like money well-spent to me. Read morePublished on April 20, 2010 by Narada
