We have both of the Charlie Stinky Socks books and they are both favourites with me and DS. He loves spotting new things in the beautiful and detailed pictures and the clever fold out pages and the story is well written enough that I haven't gotten bored of reading it yet. Lovely booksRead moreLess

This book is a longstanding favourite in our house and considering how many times I have had to read it, I think it is testament to author/illustrator Kristina Stephenson that I am not thoroughly fed up with Sir Charlie Stinky Socks. For little boys, what's not to like? A small boy-hero who is a knight with his very own trusty sword, bravely overcoming any situation - a spooky forest, horrible beasties, a witch, a fire-breathing dragon, strange creatures called wibbly woos, a tall tower and a damsel in distress. Everything's in there, and certainly the story twists and turns enough that it's hard to know where you're heading on the first read-through. The illustrations are full of colour and beautiful detail. I think as long as you can cope with the endless requests to read this book, you can't choose better for pre-school boys.

This is one of my favourite children's books and I always really enjoy reading it to my son. It's about brave Sir Charlie Stinky Socks setting out for a really big adventure in a deep dark forest where monstrous trees groan, terrible beasties moan and wigglie woos wait to tickle your toes, oh and there's also a wily witch and a fire breathing dragon too for good measure. It's great fun to read and beautifully illustrated too - an all round hit with us.Read moreLess
