Thanks for the excellent review. This sounds like a great book for reluctant readers. Kids this age seem to love this kind of humor and it is nice to get children engaged with reading in any way that they enjoy. I'll definitely put this one on my reading list.

The grosser the better for my girls. They'll think is funny. I'll make sure I'm not eating. A few hard words is not bad. Anything to improve their vocabulary. I love the cover of the book. Thank you for the review.

This book has a tendency to make you imagine the smells in your mind while reading and watching the illustrations. It can even make you feel like you could actually smell them in the room. Lovely description, though some parts might be too hard to be understood by the younger audience..

Sigfried's Smelly Socks-I hope to get this book for my boy when I have one and I also hope Sigfried could find the cause of the smells in his socks. Wonderful book for the kids.

This is a cute humorous story for little kids. They like gross stuff like this. I read it and the seven year old in me appreciates the humor.

I love it already! The alliteration of the title is fun! Since you say that you couldn't helping laughing, I want to pick this up just for the fun of it! I don't have kids, but I like to be a kid at heart! Thanks for the cute story!

Sometimes people cant stomach grossness, especially children, but from this review im sure the hilarious nature of the book more than compensates for it. I'll like to see this.

I agree with you in the review - I was not expecting this book.
I was also surprised with how much I enjoyed it and laughed over the pages =)
It truly is an enjoyable story.

Latest Review: End of the Last Great Kingdom by Victor Rose

Post by JHuschle519 » 01 Aug 2018, 08:20

This book really was as fun to read as you make it sound. I have two children and both of them got so caught up in it that they started sniffing the pages. I could swear, judging by the faces they were making, that they could actually smell some of the things described. Thank you for the great review. I definitely agree with the rating of 4 out of 4 stars, and I rated it that way as well.
