Whose family won t get off his back about *enjoying Cheese Every Now And Then He Hoards It And Even every now and then he hoards it and even rotting cheese Other people have to be *cheese every now and then he hoards it and even likes rotting cheese Other people have to be to live in the house too and this man makes it impossible This is about giving up an addiction an unhealthy habit Freeing yourself It s about giving up the excess that you are clearly a prisoner to as it has completely taken over your life Wallace P Flynn lost sight of the fact his loved ones are important than material things andor his addictions He chose to take the necessary steps to change his ways That is a message that can really apply to anything in life and I think it is an important oneAnd on a much subtle note I think the book in a way suggests that sometimes you need to stop enabling people and cut them out until they are ready to make a change You don t need to cut them out forever but it is good to take care of yourself also It s okay to not want to put up with another person s bullshit even if that person is your close relative Boundaries baby A really funny book about a man who loved stinky cheese Not only did it give him bad breath but it drove his family away and reuired professionals in gas masks to come help It s an older book as I m not sure the illustrations and story line would be printed today but I enjoyed my chance to read it The Old Man Who Loved Cheese by Garrison Keillor illustrated by Annie Wilsdorf Little Brown Co 1996 Fiction Children S 3422 Children s 3422 read this 1 because I love Garrison Keillor s sense of humor and 2 so that I can continue to say that I ve read every book that Keillor has publishedThis is a long but humorous poem in book form Everyone the old man loves leaves him because of the overpowering stench of his favorite food He learns his lesson and starts anew It s a cute little ditty that I ll never read againKudos to Annie Wilsdorf for the illustrations are much funnier than the textMy rating 710 finished 22220 3422 My five year old says This is definitely not based on a true story.
