An oldie, but boy-o-boy it's a goodie!


If you never had the pleasure of reading this book as a child (perhaps you were not yet born for ten years when this books came out), I'll fill you in: Famous fairytales retold as FAIRLYSTUPID are some examples of the hilarity that ensues................................

Sorry to give away the ending.

............needless to say, unlike The Gingerbread Man, the gift of speed was wasted on The Stinky Cheese one gave chase. 

 The not-so delectable Stinky Cheese Man.

And no fairlystupid tale would be complete without a whingeing, self-righteous hen !

Happy reading!

Nina doesn’t have a conventional family. Her family robs banks—even she and her twelve-year-old brother Tom are in on the act now.  After yet another move and another new school, Nina is fed up and wants things to change. This time she’s made a friend she’s determined to keep: Spencer loves weird words and will talk to her about almost anything. His mother has just left home with a man who looks like a body-builder vampire, and his father and sister have stopped talking.  Spencer and Nina both need each other as their families fall apart, but Nina is on the run and doesn’t know if she will ever see Spencer again…
