The Lovereading4Kids comment
Everyone will enjoy this epic tale of true love and steadfastness, no less heroic or inspiring for starring a pair of woolly socks! Sosh and Suki are made for one another and their life on a fresh pair of feet is idyllic, until Sosh spots something that fills him with dread – a little hole in Suki’s big toe. The dire warnings from old sock Big Bob seem to come true when Sosh wakes up alone, but he’s determined to find his other half. Author and illustrator both go to town, creating a fabulously funny and inventive story of true sock love, with a surprise ending that will leave everyone smiling. Great fun, and the sock drawer will never be the same again! ~ Andrea Reece

Odd Socks by Michelle Robinson
Suki and Sosh love their life. Each day they go to work together on their pair of feet, and each night they snuggle together in their sock drawer. But then disaster strikes: Sosh spots that Suki has a hole. Darn it! Sure enough, his warm, woolly wife starts to unravel, until one day Suki is nowhere to be found. The rest of the underwear warn him not to go it alone - no one likes an odd sock. But Sosh swears to find her.
