Winner of the Practical Pre-School Bronze medal and shortlisted for the Red House Children’s Book award. Join the courageous Sir Charlie Stinky Socks on his Really BIG Adventure. With his trusty grey mare and Envelope the cat, Sir Charlie and your child can explore the deep dark forest, hear the monstrous trees groan, terrible beasties moan and wiggly woos that cannot wait to tickle your toes... Sir Charlie doesn't flinch when he meets the beasties, or the dragon, or the wily witch, but when he comes across the princess, he realises he's met his match! Watch how your child immerses themselves in the trials of Sir Charlie and defies the drooling monsters and the fire breathing dragon to save the day.
‘Talk about a book coming to life! I was there, in that forest with those Wiggly Woos!’ - Kristina Stephenson, Author and Illustrator
You will be amazed at how these wonderful children's stories come to life with Qbook (provided by Firsty Group and Kiwa Media). Children love being able to run their fingers over the text to hear the story and touch any word to hear it spoken. The fun sounds and animation adds another dimension of interaction that will keep children going back to read the book time and time again. They will happily spend hours colouring in the illustrations and you can record yourself reading the story as well. It's great fun for kids of all ages and it helps with early learning and literacy development. This is the perfect gift for your children and it's educational as well.

My son is 5 and autistic. He does not speak, but he can read a little. This book is amazing in that the reading voice is very engaging and the words are creatively placed and "POP' and highlight as they are read. It is expanding his vocabulary. Not to mention the story is wonderful! His older sister enjoys it so much, too!
I had to write a review because today, my son of few words, started laughing on our third time thru the story and shouting "Stinky!" which is a word he has never used before. Behold... "Stinky" is a huge hit with us! Please please please make more Sir Charlie Stinky Socks apps.
PS He wants to be Sir Charlie Stinky Socks this Halloween. :)
Sir Charlie stinky sock great adventure
I want to tell you my grandson really loves this book. Each time I go over to his house he asks for this book and transforms into Charlie with stinky socks and all. He has all his monster friends lined up to listen to the story. Please let us all know when there are more iPad aps with more sir stinky story's!
Good old fashioned story telling goes digital!
This app is a beautiful blending of a creative story, a great narrator and just enough interactivity. It's a digital book that stays a book - not a game or activity. It's just the ticket to engage children with the story not the pixels. Extremely well done. We'll be seeing lots of Sir Stinky Socks, I'm sure.
