The best-selling children's picture book about one brave knight and a whole lot of adventure. And so begins the next adventure - an adventure in which Sir Charlie Stinky Socks embarks on a truly terrifying quest to bring back long, lost treasure. Following a musty, dusty map Sir Charlie Stinky Socks, his faithful cat Envelope and - of course- his good grey mare, enter a scary underground world with all manner of tricks, traps and medieval puzzles. Sir Charlie must use all his cunning and wit to get the others through. But what has happened to Sir Charlie Stinky Socks? All of a sudden our trusty hero can't get anything right. Has someone bewitched him? Or stolen his socks? Or maybe this bold brave knight (the one with the shield and wearing the helmet) ...isn't Sir Charlie at all? Yikes! A fraud! An impostor! A fiendish foe who might be after the treasure! A swashbuckling, funny and charming adventure from best-selling picture book authorillustrator Kristina Stephenson - an ideal read aloud story to share with your little adventurer.
Kristina Stephenson trained as a set and costume designer. She had a successful career in theatre and children's TV until she had her children. Wanting to stay at home with them, she turned to illustration. Inspired to write by her own son Charlie (who doesn't have stinky socks), she showed it to a friend in the book trade. Thankfully for us, he recommended that she then send it to Egmont! Kristina lives with her husband, who is a musician, and her son and daughter in Wiltshire.
