Product Description

Review

"This is a book that makes one want to collect up every child under seven in the vicinity, sit them down and 'sock it to them'" (Books for Keeps)

"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 2012-03-01)

"The jokes are thick and fast in this noisy, colourful celebration of the sock. Excellent for reading aloud, with big and bold illustrations to match" (Julia Eccleshare Guardian 2012-04-07)

"This is the perfect way to inspire young children to be creative by taking the simplest of everyday objects and transforming it into something new" (Sally Morris Daily Mail 2012-02-24)

"It is a shameless romp that even suggests that a socksophone might be easy to play. It has contagious gaiety, pace and energy and is tremendous fun to read aloud" (Kate Kellaway Guardian 2012-04-02)

Book Description

A fantastically funny picture book that will have you wriggling and giggling your socks off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Socks 14 Feb 2012
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The incomparable Nick Sharratt is back and, after the delights of Pants and More Pants, he now turns his attention to Socks. Well, why not? The illustrations and bright and cheerful and the book just asks to be read aloud. In a world populated by sock shaped hippocockamuses, sockatoos and even a Sock Ness monster, the rhyming text is a joy. "Sockywockydoodah! By our little sockmarine there's a socktopus, a mersock and a sockshark looking MEAN!" An ideal book for the 2-5 age group and I am certain this will be read again and again in our house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its the sockywockydoodah 30 Mar 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
If you love socks then this story is for you as its sockywockydoodah. With bright colours, wonderful invention and of course a whole host of socks to help take the reader on an adventure it's a story for the younger market that will entice and be a lot of fun, especially if you get a spare sock out to play a role or two.

Add to this a wonderful sense of fun in the illustration, words that repeat that will allow the young person to join in and a story that gives an adventure and all in its great fun.

Socks is a cheerful and funny book, perfect for a toddler who delights in obsessively removing his socks. Colourful illustrations, and the text has a rhythm that appeals to small ears. Easy to read aloud, enjoyed by both adult and child.
