Synopsis

Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? by Eve Bunting

I have lost my new blue socks. Did I put them in my box? Simple rhymes - including socks, box, fox, and ox! - spin the tale of a small duck who waddles through the countryside, forlornly searching for his blue socks. I'm trying not to be depressed. Without my socks I feel undressed. Finally, a sharp-eyed peacock sees a bit of blue peeking out of duck's lace-up shoes and the mini-mystery is solved! Soft-hued, adorable pen-and-ink and watercolour paintings adorn this winsome story that shares the familiar experience of not really losing something after all.

Reviews

A great addition to the literature on ducks. . . or socks! --Kirkus, starred review Bunting and Ruzzier create a lightly surreal and emotionally benevloent landscape. . . . The book's gentle takeaway [is] reinforced by Ruzzier's signature offbeat aesthetic . . . and Bunting's solid, conversational rhymes. --Publishers Weekly, starred review Such angst over a pair of socks has never been conveyed so well. . . . A perfect book for the newest reader, especially one with a grand sense of humor. --Horn Book, starred review This is a whimsical delight for children whose parents clamor for phonics-based books. --School Library Journal, starred review Good fun. --Booklist What makes this version particularly enjoyable are offbeat touches that mirror a preschooler's precipitously escalated emotions. . . . Bunting and Ruzzier work together well, capturing preschool fears and uncertain sentiments but, in the end, making it all O.K. --The New York Times Online With its simple vocabulary and Seussian rhymes, this would be a fine choice for an emerging reader to read aloud. --The Wall Street Journal The sonorous, Seussian cadence of Bunting's rhyming text lends itself to reading aloud, but older beginning readers up to a few challenging vocabulary words might also successfully tackle this on their own, especially once they've heard it read a few times. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
