Funniest book I've read in a long time. A bunch of 6th graders recommended this book to me and I took the bait. My favorite Jon Scieszka is the Stinky Cheese Man, which is also extremely funny. I recommended the book to my parents who grow up around the same time and could relate to the stories that Jon told. Definitely a must read!

I've got a couple of boys, ages 7 and 9. I never read to them before bed anymore, but we had a short return to bedtime stories with this book. Nice short stories, easily broken up over a few nights. Probably the only bedtime stories I ever read that had to be paused while I stopped laughing.
