Buying gifts for kids when you don’t have one the same age is really hard. I never know what toys are age-appropriate or what’s so popular that the kid will already own it. (And probably have already gotten bored of it.)
But books always seem like a safe bet. I’m thrilled when someone gives me a new book for Elle, especially if there’s a personal inscription inside. If you happen to be shopping for a book for a miniature cheese lover, I would highly suggest “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales.”
The book is an off-beat spoof of children’s fairy tales that’s just silly and gross enough to actually capture their attention. The ugly duckling grows up to be an ugly duck and the princess who kisses a frog doesn’t get a prince, just slime on her face. Of course, my favorite story is about the stinky cheese man. He’s got olives for eyes and bacon for a mouth and smells so bad that no one wants to even try to eat him. I think he’s pretty cute:
The book sells for $9.94 on Amazon.
