The first in a hilarious picture book series about a brave boy knight Once upon a time, there was a dark forest, where monstrous trees groaned, terrible beasties moaned, and wiggly woos waited to tickle your toes. Nobody went there until . . . Sir Charlie Stinkysocks, his good grey mare, and his pet cat decide the time has come for a big adventure. Sir Charlie packs his best sword and his sandwiches and off he goes, across 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 realizes he's met his match.(

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

            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.

happens next is&well, I suppose you should read the story and find that out for
yourself.  But I can tell you this:  Sir Charlies socks may stink up a storm, but
they dont 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 childrens classic, Where The Wild Things Are.
