Sigfried's Smelly Socks by Len Foley is a children's book about stinky things. The narrative follows a boy who tries to find the source of the stinky smell. In search of it, he keeps guessing.

At first, Sigfried thought that the smell comes from the rotten banana that he left on the page, and he keeps on guessing further. He talks about dog pee, squish-mushed chewing gum that he stuck on the page, pizza slice that he used as a bookmark, etc. At last, he found out the socks that he kept hidden beneath his bed. This book is literally stinky with all those pages full of foul-smelling stuff. His socks smell like rotten cabbage, ostrich breath, skunk feet, toilet seat, etc.

This book is both humorous and educational. It would help children identify different types of dirty things which produce an unpleasant smell. It would give them an idea of the importance of cleanliness and encourage them to wash their socks regularly.

The illustrations are eye-catching. The thing that caught my eyes was the picture of the chewing gum. It was funny. Different colours are used in different words. I think the length of this book is perfect for children as long books are often a turn off for them.

I personally enjoyed reading this book. It was fun. There was nothing that I didn't like about the book. I believe that it is professionally edited since I didn't find a single error throughout the book. Therefore, I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I would recommend it for 3 to 7-year-old children.
