The Old Man Who Loved Cheese by Garrison Keillor. il by Anne Wilsdorf.
Little, Brown and Company: Boston, 1996.

Wallace P. Flynn is a man who relishes any and all cheeses. The smellier the better. He drives away neighbors. He drives away animals. He even drives away his family. Until the fateful day the judge hands down the sentence of "No cheese!"

I discovered this book years ago when looking for picture books for my youngest. It is a ballad full of hilarious word-play, outrageous details, and exaggerated reactions. Reading aloud is the best way to appreciate the language while little ones pour over the accompanying pictures.

RL=3rd-4th and read aloud to pre-k to 2nd
