Want a kids book series with adventures involving beasties, wiggly woos who tickle your toes, ghoulies, dragons, princesses, witches, wizards, treasure maps, medieval riddles and even a knobbly goblie? Well, once upon a time there was a bold, brave knight called Sir Charlie Stinky Socks who went on quests with his faithful, fearless cat, Envelope and his good grey mare.
I have great fun reading out loud the stories of the gallant little knight in the Sir Charlie Stinky Socks kids book series by Kristina Stephenson. Sir Charlie does have smelly socks but also a big gentle heart. My kids particularly love the scary beasties who usually turn out to be rather lovely creatures. Sir Charlie braves dark forests, underground tunnels and climbs tall towers to save princesses or break spells or find treasure in the five books available in this book series for kids.
In each of these kids adventure books some of the pages flap open so you have extra tall or wide pages in which the story enfolds. The changing font and the words following the adventures across the pages capture my kids’ imaginations. Now they delight in reading out loud themselves the sound effects.
The theatrical background of the author Kristina Stephenson can be felt in her wonderful illustrations of the knight’s tales. The author and mother of two also likes kids to feel involved in these knight adventure books by getting them to act out parts when she visits schools or at her appearances at literary festivals in the UK.
The Sir Charlie Stinky Socks children book series are becoming hugely popular now in Britain, with parents (like me) and kids (like mine) eagerly waiting every new book published. I’ve bought all five in this kids book series for Luce and Theo and have already pre-ordered the sixth book coming out October 2013.
The Sir Charlie Stinky Socks kids book series are available on Amazon (I’m an affiliate) but also have a look at the UK site for more shipping options and further great reviews.
