Adapted from the book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith. The story contains zany versions of classic tales with the fabulous humor that has made this Caldecott Award winning book so popular. You will have fun with Jack, the narrator, who takes you through the twists and turns of this wacky tale. Learn the real story of Chicken Licken or is that Chicken Little? And then there is Cinderumpelstiltskin. Will she have to spin her own dress? Will she go to the ball? The Really Ugly Duckling will make you laugh and cry and everyone will leave with a somewhat revised view of that Little Red Hen.
