Book Corner: Sir Charlie Stinky Socks The Pirate's Curse

20 February 2017

My book corner choice this month is: Sir Charlie Stinky Socks The Pirate's curse by Kristina Stephenson


We have several books in the Sir Charlie Stinky Socks series and previously reviewed the Tale of the Wizard's Whisper but we loved this one so much we had to share it too. 



The Pirate's curse is a romp of a tale, involving our hero Sir Charlie Stinky socks his faithful cat envelope and his good grey mare. This time they discover a bottle bobbing in the water and wade out to fetch it. Inside the bottle is a message that sets them off on an adventure. 


They stowaway on a boat with a hairy scary captain and his motley crew. But they are discovered... 

They have to face the captain, his motley crew, a fierce storm and a man-eating monster but will they discover who sent the message? 

This story is just as exciting and entertaining as the others, if not better. The illustrations are simply gorgeous with humour and beautiful detail on every page. 

I'm sure every child reading this tale will want to be brave and adventurous just like Sir Charlie. 



There is clever positioning and use of text to add effect and fold out pages that show off the beautiful illustrations brilliantly and add interest. There is so much to discover on every read.

We really loved the end of the story and the boys never tire of hearing this tale over and over again. The true sign of a great story!

I also love the lesson this book gives - not to judge people by their appearance. 

I would highly recommend this brilliant book!

Our rating 10!

Age 5-9.
Price: 6.99 GBP
