Kids' book of the month

Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants - Giles Andreae and Korky Paul

Sir Scallywag and the Golden UnderpantsBottoms, knights and evil baddies are packed together in our February book of the month. Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants is a hilariously fun comic adventure with pant-tastic rhyme for laugh out-loud silliness

When King Colin's golden pants go missing, he calls for Sir Scallywag, the bravest knight in the land. But...Sir Scallywag is only 6 years old and with an evil giant to pursue, it's nearly mission impossible! Luckily, it's a story of David and Goliath. With his trusted steed Doofus at his side, Sir Scallywag proves that even the unlikeliest hero can be the bravest knight of all.

Giles Andreae is an award-winning children's author and has written both fiction titles and bestselling picture books, such as Pants and The Lion who Wanted to Love. He is probably most famous as the creator of the phenomenally successful Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. 

Illustrator Korky Paul's bright energetic style is instantly recognisable. With a string of awards to his name, he is best-known for his portrayal of Winnie the Witch, everyone's favourite magical mischief maker.
