Review quote

"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 20120301 "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 20120407 "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 20120224 "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 20120402
