Review

"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; Socks by Nick Sharratt and co-author Elizabeth Lindsay and Dance Together Dinosaurs by Jane Clarke and illustrated by Lee Wildish. Two books that definitely make us giggle!


Sockywockydoodah! If you thought socks were just for keeping your toes warm then you have to read Socks. Who knew you could do so much with your socks?! There are sock animals, sock people and even sock instruments. What we loved about this book was the illustrations; 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; having fun!" (http://yummymummyflabbytummy.blogspot.com/2012/01/books-that-make-us-giggle.html)

"Award-winning children's illustrator and author Nick Sharratt has teamed up with fellow author Elizabeth Lindsay to produce Socks (David Fickling Books, hardback, £10.99), a brilliantly clever picture book which celebrates the nation's favourite footwear.
We're talking big and bold here... big pictures, big writing and big, barmy adventures! There's a smiling sockodile, a dozing hipposockamus, an eight-legged socktopus and even a Sock Ness Monster enjoying a summer holiday.
Pages of silly big words containing socks such as Socywockydoodah, Sockywockychoochoo train will enchant little ones who can work their way through a series of sock animals, storytime characters, objects, transport and even greedy-guts Goldisocks.
The rhyming story is full of sockywocky fun, socks of every design and colour and will keep kids (and grown-ups) in stocking stitches for hours on end!" (Blackpool Gazette)

"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." (The Guardian)

"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." (Daily Mail)

Book Description

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

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.

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.

Maybe its the simple but spot on rhymes or the slight mystery of the everyday objects with slightly different, this book has been a regular reading request for my 21 year old month.

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.

Disappointing in comparison to Pants. Bought it thinking it was going to be as colourful and witty as Pants, but neither or my children are impressed by it, so it's on the shelf and Pants is still the firm favourite.
