Stephenson, Kristina. Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure. $16.99. Egmont, 2009. Sir Charlie Stinky Socks prepares for his adventure by packing some sandwiches, bottled water, and a little something special. Riding his horse, accompanied by his cat, and watched by a wily witch, he goes into the deep dark forest. He encounters all sorts of creatures on his way to a tall tower where he finds a princess and the wily witch. Alliteration and illustrations propel this charming tale along with the four flaps adding to the fun; a great book to read aloud. Recommend this story to fans of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. EL-ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
