dc.description.abstractThis is a second extra copy with the Caldecott seal. Great fun! Its LC summary is apt: " Madcap revisions of familiar fairy tales. " The book dares one to take it seriously, as when the last page's credits prosaically claim that " The illustrations are rendered in oil and vinegar. " Later in the credits: " Anyone caught telling these fairly stupid tales will be visited, in person, by the Stinky Cheese Man. " Zipper-mouthed Jack, the narrator, has trouble with the little red hen even before the title page. Jack interrupts the first story because he forgot the T of C. It, not the sky, falls on Chicken Licken and everyone else in the first story. The one fable is TH, in which the hare's growing hair is still racing the slow tortoise! T of C promises a second fable that the book does not get to: " The Boy Who Cried `Cow Patty.' " Delightful modern art.en_US
