Children’s books – Introducing Sir Charlie Stinky Socks

14 Jan

I haven’t before mentioned children’s books on this blog, which is wrong, really wrong.  Today I would like to introduce you to a series of children’s books that I think are so very right.

Sir Charlie Stinky Socks is written and illustrated by Kristina Stephenson The first book in the series is ‘Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the really dreadful spell’.

‘Sir Charlie Stinky Socks, his good grey mare and his pet cat Envelope decide the time has come for a really big adventure. Sir Charlie packs his best sword and his sandwiches and off he goes, over the hills and far away, until he gets to the deep, dark forest. Sir Charlie doesn’t flinch when he meets the beasties, or the dragon, or the wily witch, but when he comes across the princess, he realises he’s met his match’.

Following on from this first adventure, Sir Charlie experiences a ‘Really frightful night,’  and a ‘ Really dreadful spell.

 

Not only are the stories fantastic with wiggly woos and a witch with a watch, the illustrations really tell the story, drawing you in. Plus, you can interact with large flaps and pull out pages. Forget the kids, you will love reading this as much as they will hearing it.

I for one hope we will see more of this brave bold knight. What a refreshing change for the children’s bookshelf.
