Sir Charlie's third aventure of the smelly kindOnce upon a misty morning, from the top of a twisty-wisty beanstalk, someone was looking down on to a tall, tall tower. Magic and mischief are afoot as a dreadful spell is cast on the forest. But who can save them before the sands of time run out? Enter Sir Charlie Stinky Socks--honorable, feisty, tenacious, and courageous as always. Our pungent hero must face this new foe and break the spell before he's turned to stone.
Kristina Stephenson Kristina Stephenson trained as a set and costume designer. She had a successful career in Theatre and Children's TV until she had her children. Wanting to stay at home with them, she turned to illustration. She has illustrated many non-fiction books. Inspired to write this picture book by her own son Charlie (who doesn't have stinky socks), she showed it to a friend in the book trade. Thankfully for us, he recommended that she send it to Egmont. With a change in artwork style, it's clear that a rare and exciting new picture book talent has emerged. Kristina lives with her husband, who is a musician, and her son and daughter in Wiltshire.
