I like how you teased that the ending was not what you expected and has gotten me interested in reading this. While my own son has outgrown the target age range of this particular book, I have a few friends that it may be worth gifting to if the book is as funny as you have described.

The book is silly and will appeal to young kids' gross sense of humor. I mean, why not wipe your nose in a book or use pizza for a bookmark? The dog peeing on it is completely realistic.

Sounds like a perfect book for my 4 year old son. Based on the review not only would he find it funny but it would be a good book to get him interested in reading.

After reading the review, I think this would be a great book for kids. Kids tend to think anything stinky or gross is funny and the illustrations are really cute. The review talks about this book being "laugh out loud" so it sounds like a fun read. I plan to read this book to my 4 year old.

I am very impressed with the review given for this book. Simply impressive. I still need to work on my review game when it comes to children's novels. I'm lucky to come up with a paragraph at best. The cover of this book is adorable. I was shocked to find that I already own a copy of the book! I went to borrow it on Kindle Unlimited. Guess I know what I'll be doing tonight! (Reading to my puppies of course!) If I manage to get this done, I'll post a review when I'm done.

I also liked the illustrations. They are bright and eye-catching. The topic of socks is a unique spin.

Sigfried's Smelly Socks! was the first book that I read and reviewed. I found it to be very descriptive and entertaining as Sigfried went about describing things that smelled disgusting to him. I awarded it 3 out of 4 stars in my review because I liked it. If anyone would like to read my review please go here: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=55705.

I must say.. I love the book already just by reading the description. A book about adventurous, hilarious and specifically writing what the smell is? The book had me there. I would recommended it to my brothers and sisters to read it.
