Win a copy of Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants

***Competition now closed the winner is siobhan Williams**

Written by  award-winning Giles Andreae, author of Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs and KateGreenaway winning illustrator Korky Paul, of Winnie the Witch fame this book was destined to be rather fabulous. Bottoms, knights and evil baddies (all the things bound to appeal to a little scamp) are the themes in Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants. Bound to appeal to young boys it had my daughter in stitches too. It is very funny.

Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants

King Colin has some rather fabulous golden underpants and they go missing. He’s distraught…

I’m lost without my underpants

My umderpants of gold

and besides its rather draughty

and my bottoms getting cold

Sir Scallywag, an unlikely hero, (age six) comes gallantly to his rescue  and take on the giant who had pinched them to wear on this head. It is a very funny-poem story that rhymes becutifully and that will really make you chukle. The pictures are superb, full of comic details and the more you look the more you will see.

Sir Scallywag and the Golden underpants  is an out and out delight and a real pleasure to read out loud.

This book is on general release on February 2nd.

    To pick just one favourite childrens book? Impossible, but I’ll try! ………
    Tatty Ratty by Helen Cooper. It recounts the adventures had by one loved, and lost, toy rabbit until the day he is reunited with his little girl; a lovely book, beautifully illustrated, that served us well in the (many) times when we mislaid our daughters very own ‘Crusty Rabbit’!

    My favourite book is Dr Seuss Green Eggs and Ham. As well as making a very valid point with the story, I love the way Dr Seuss books play with words, they’re fun to read and kids enjoy them. And the weird pictures and creations are great too.

    My eldest boy loved Miss Spider’s Tea Party. His great grandma bought it for him when he was about 1 and whenever we used to visit, that would be all he was interested in. Our 2nd child came along and he too loved it, then the 3rd. Now we have a 4th son and the book is still around. We can’t wait to share it with our latest addidtion. It really is a lovely book and my eldest son always remembers the times he had with his great grandma which is so good for him.
