Reviews

Rich in fun language, this book is the perfect prompt for you and your child to make up your own silly stories with a sock on each little (and grown-up) hand. Junior We've been reading 2 books recently that combine silliness and laughter into easy to read picture books

everything is in back and white except for the socks! There are multi-coloured socks, patterned socks and stripy socks. We loved reading about Goldisocks and the three cross bears and the search for the Sock Ness Monster. There are lots of silly sock-related words but that just added to the fun of the book which is what reading is all about in our eyes
