Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure, by Kristina Stephenson, is a hilariously-illustrated book for children who love a good,scary adventure story.
Sir Charlie is a brave young knight who is not afraid to venture into the dark woods and stand up to moaning beasties and cackling witches. Armed with his sword, his trusty steed, a couple of sandwiches, his cat and a big cup of water, he sets off to find adventure. What he finds is a thirsty dragon and a pretty, teary-eyed princess hidden away in a creepy room at the top of a dark, winding staircase.
What happens next is…well, I suppose you should read the story and find that out for yourself. But I’ll tell you this: Sir Charlie’s socks may stink up a storm, but they don’t stop him from being one brave knight.
Your child is sure to enjoy this one, especially the illustrations, which are curiously reminiscent of the sleepy-time monsters in the beloved children’s classic, Where The Wild Things Are.
