Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants by Giles Andreae and Korky Paul

1400585072751Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants is a lovely book for children written by Giles Andreae and Korky Paul.

Sir Scallywag is a brave knight even if he is only 6 years old. When King Colin of England has his super special underpants stolen he sends Sir Scallywag forth to find them.

It is a great and funny story written in rhyme with fantastic illustrations to bring the story to life.

1400585108609My 3 year old is particularly amused by the whole “underpants” thing.

There are a couple of verses which I, as a parent, gasp a little at. i.e. when Sir Scallywag imagines the king chopping his head off. But then again its harmless really, I mean we grew up with knights slaying dragons and witches poisoning princesses.


the moral of the story

The best thing that I liked about this book was, that it has a moral. It’s not just a silly tail, but it also teaches children that no matter who they are, no matter how small, they can be brave too.

There is also a follow-up being released on the 5th June, which we cannot wait to get!
