Especially if you're three. My son loved reading this. We have some Andrae already and I enjoy reading his rhyming stories aloud. This was no exception.

Paul's Winnie-like illustrations were well-suited to the tale, familiar to us both and even seemed to include Wilbur the cat!

Young knight Sir Scallywag is called into action when Baron Greedyguts tries to steal King Colin's giant sweet machine using his own nefarious dragon poo weapon. A lot of poo is flung. For any child of this age it's a bit of a dream combination - sweets, poo, dragons, Korky Paul. And some fun rhyming text.

I'd not heard of this series and now have Sir Scallywag's first outing on order at the library. We love him, a resourceful young hero and a 'rude' sense of humour destined to appeal to the age group. Chortlesome stuff.

This is such a good read. My 6 year old laughs his socks off and takes great delight in reading it himself to others. For any child that obsesses about toilet humour this book is a must. Fantastic story and great pictures. We also have the golden underpants book which again is a firm favourite. Well done

Amazing book for me and my 4 year old daughter.. we have loved so many of Giles Andreae books in our home, from Giraffe can't dance to all the Captain Flinn series. Sir Scallywag golden underpants was my daughters favourite for a long time and when we saw this deadly dragon poo I knew this was going to be another great hit in the house.

My daughter loves adventure books and this is just want is up her street with funny sentences that she uses all the time and giggles. Very silly book however has a nice message at the end of the book. Definitely recommend this book to any parent and personally I think this one is even better than the golden underpants...

This was a gift for my 18 month old and 3 year old from their grandparents. Its another fabulous outing for Andreae - the boys love the poo and where it ends up! if you are looking for a good book for pre-schoolers this should be on your list (although i must admit i found his Golden Underpants story truley hilarious!)

Bought this for my four year old son, who is a big fan of Sir Scalliwag and the Golden Underpants.

Had a flick through it and decided not to give it to him…it's just ridiculously crude, in my view. Yes, I know kids love toilet humour, but this takes it too far. One page reads: "A rumbling and a grumbling sound began inside their tums, and soon the foulest dragon poo came gurgling from their bums…"

I mean, seriously? Would you want a four year old repeating that?

I would far rather have a book that works hard to appeal to kids through its plot, characters, imagery, whatever, rather than this crass and frankly lazy attempt to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Shame as Giles Andreae is a gifted storyteller and I have loved all his previous work.

Having said that, many parents probably think that kind of language is fine and have no problem with their kids reading it, and that's great! But parents have to draw a line somewhere based on their own sensibilities, and this crosses it for me.
