It's the most smelly and dirty book I've read so far. You will know the reason as I am going to uncover the secret in my review. So kindly bear with me.
Sigfried's Smelly Socks by Len Foley is an engaging children's book. From the very start of the book, something is smelly. No one knows what it is. Maybe it is the rotten banana or the chewing gum. But nothing is comparable with the smelly socks of Sigfried that are hidden under the bed. There are different kinds of socks, and each one smells different. One of them is a grey sock that smells exactly like an old potato. It's probably because Sigfried's uncle Kato left a potato there. He also spilt some ketchup and dribbled turnip clumps. Compared to all of this, Sigfried's socks don't cause much trouble. But he finally decides to wash them anyway.
From the funny-looking Sigfried to his dirty socks, I loved every corner of this book. The story is funny, and it is written in rhymes, which is appropriate for children. Some of the important words in the book were boldened to make them more noticeable. Visually, the book was a delight to read. Smart use of colours and cartoons made it a perfect children's book. Overall, the book made me laugh, and that is what matters most in a children's book.
The book was proficiently edited. I couldn't find a single typo in it. It is probably because the book is very short, consisting of only 27 pages, and the pages contain 4-10 lines on average. Clearly, I didn't dislike anything about this book.
I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. As I stated earlier that, this is a perfect children's book. Hence, the rating seems appropriate from my point of view. I recommend this book to children from 4-7 years of age. It is also recommended to parents who have kids in their home. My only request to you is that you buy a physical book instead of a digital one. In my opinion, a physical book is always a better option for children.
