  1. Great theme, Kellee. I know some, like The Stinky Cheese Man, still a fun favorite, but others look fun(ny) too, like Little Roja Riding Hood & The Princess and the Pit Stop. Thanks for all!

  2. This is such a fun theme for your 10 for 10 post! I haven’t read any of these, but they all look great, especially The Little Red Fort. Thanks so much for the great post, Kellee!
