Odd Socks

Written by Michelle Robinson

Illustrated by Rebecca Ashdown

Odd Socks Synopsis

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.
