The Lovereading4Kids comment

Most children think they are bold and brave and terribly clever. So why not join up with Charlie the Knight on a marvellous adventure, where whilst all around him are in fear of their life, Charlie is big, bold and daring and ends up ensuring everyone has a really big adventure. Vibrant illustrations and fold-out flaps give the story an additional dimension that can’t fail to entrance the reader and bring them back time and time again.

Synopsis

Sir Charlie Stinkysocks and the Really Big Adventure by Kristina Stephenson

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. But when he comes across the princess, he realises he's met his match.

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.
