Sigfried's Smelly Socks!, written and illustrated by Len Foley, is a children's book. To be honest, I have never sat down to read a children’s book. So, for a change, I decided to review Sigfried's Smelly Socks!. It didn’t take me long to read. The story is about Sigfried, who discovers that his book smells really bad, and he attempts to find the source of the smell. In this humor-filled adventure, Sigfried takes us through different stinks you can imagine. We encounter his pile of unwashed socks, a rotten banana, and lots more.
Sigfried's Smelly Socks! is a picture book nothing short of eye-catching, and it's a really fun book to read. Len Foley manages to immediately capture the heart of the reader through the artwork, while also passing an underlying message about cleanliness. As we all know, kids are attracted to more of pictures than words at the early ages of 2-7, and as such, this book is definitely going to effectively entertain them from the first page to the last.
Also, apart from the humor and beauty in the book, the detailed grossness of the book is quite disgusting. But I know most kids won’t mind, and they would rather find it fascinating and hilarious. The book is also filled with words written in form of rhymes, which give the reader an option to even sing along and makes reading the book more fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, except in some parts where the author had written the words ‘blue socks’ in pink color. Kids tend to grasp this kind of things quickly, so I take it as an editing error. Apart from that, the book is a good read.
In general, Sigfried's Smelly Socks! is a good book, and I would recommend it to kids between the ages of 3-7, but definitely not to people easily grossed out. I think that this book will provide a healthy dose of fun to kids. I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. The minor error didn't detract from my enjoyment of the book.
