Sir Scallywag and the Battle for Stinky Bottom by Giles Andreae

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. King Colin sends Sir Scallywag, a six-year-old knight, to retrieve the golden sausage from Stinky Bottom because it will enable the king to live forever. However, a hundred filthy trolls live at Stinky Bottom and Sir Scallywag has to defeat them before he can bring the sausage home. This farcical and absurdly funny rhyming tale is complemented by the wickedly humorous illustrations. (Ages 3–6)
