One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | October 2017 Book of the Month
Beautifully illustrated throughout, this stunning book by Tatyana Feeney is an absolute delight to read.
Mr Wolf just loves his socks. He feels particularly good when wearing them and so is rather concerned when he suddenly notices a small hole appear in one. He tries to ignore it but gradually it gets bigger and bigger. He attempts to fix the hole using plasters, glue and sticky tape but nothing seems to work and so he decides to search for the answer in a book. He soon discovers how he can make his very own socks, socks of different lengths and colours. Whilst his nose is buried in a book he stumbles across the end of a length of wool which is exactly what he needs to make his socks! He then embarks on a trip around Ireland following the string of wool in pursuit of its source. As his adventure continues he begins to imagine all the things he can knit, until finally Mr Wolf discovers where the wool has come from. Before long he has knitted himself a brand new pair of socks and delights in the fact that he'll never be caught out by hole again!
I absolutely loved the dapper, friendly Mr Wolf and his colourful, cosy socks. Perfect to share with young book (and sock!) lovers. ~ Shelley Fallows - You can also find Shelley here.
