"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!"

"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)
A fantastically funny picture book that will have you wriggling and giggling your socks off!See all Product description

My two little ones love the last page - really makes them gigglePublished on 1 Mar. 2015 by Kelly J.
My 6 year old loves this. We'd borrowed it from the library about 4 times before I decided to buy our own copy. Very clever ideas.Published on 20 Oct. 2014 by Anna B
