Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Tale of Two Treasures by Kristina Stephenson

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 author/illustrator Kristina Stephenson - an ideal read aloud story to share with your little adventurer.

A Day in the Life of Me

The alarm clock wakes me early – too early sometimes – but I’m glad it does – I must be up before anyone else. I need a quiet house (and the calming influence of the dawn chorus) in order to perfect my ‘master work-plan for the day’. I also need to pick a nice menu for supper, pack some sandwiches and a big bottle of water for Maddie’s geography trip and find that favourite little something for Charlie to take to school - just in case - (now where have I heard that before?).

At school I kiss the kids goodbye, remount my faithful bike and head back home. Home, which as I cycle towards it, is morphing magically into a place of work – an office. I’m clever you see: I make the beds, I wash up the breakfast things, and I hide away anything laundry-like, before I leave the house. I do it every morning, you know, so that by the time I return, the transformation has taken place. Wow!

This happens in a little room, which nestles neatly between the kitchen (which is, of course, on my return, no longer a kitchen but a place to refresh water pots and wash paint brushes) and the tiny courtyard (now bereft of all bikes bar mine), which has become a secret garden into which I look for inspiration and the occasional fairy.
