A Highly recommended read!
The book is about a king who has golden underpants which he sees as lucky. They are stolen by an evil giant, so he goes about wearing no pants. Now that's pretty funny in itself. The king get his bravest knight which is Sir Scallyway, who is only 6 years old to go and get the underpants back. The giant is wearing the golden underpants on his head, another eruption of laughter at someone wearing pants on their head. My boys thought it was great seeing this little knight defeating the giant, just like the David and Goliath story and getting the Kings underpants returned to him.
The illustrations occumpany the book perfectly. They have great detail, but are not over done.
This story is funny, light hearted, some great rhyming and some funny words used along the way. Not only that, but it teaches a great lesson in bullying, that they can be overcome by even the smallest of boys. An excellent lesson for young children.
I think this is a fantastic book, perfect for bedtime and one that will have everyone laughing aloud. I can guarntee you will read it again and again.
She was delighted.
Great book with little giggle bits.. Fantastic read

My grandson, 4, did not engage with this story; I think he found the whole idea ridiculous rather than funny. The illustrations, exaggerated and crass, are sometimes even ugly. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Moira Jakobsson
