Summary From Amazon : “ Pippin is as mad as can be. “I can’t find my other sock!” he exclaims. “My yellow sock with clocks, just like the one I am wearing!” Where do those maddening missing socks go? Pippin is determined to find out. Together with his friend Tog, he embarks on the greatest sock search ever.
Laundry baskets! Wastebaskets! Fruit baskets? No drawer is left unturned. From a mountaintop of socks, through a maze of mismatched knits, to a gatefold clothesline showcasing cheerful argyles, stripes, and dots, WHERE’S MY SOCK? bursts with colorful footwear for kids to look for, count, and pair. “
Why I love it : I picked this book out after seeing Debbie Ridpath Ohi ‘s Where are my Books? I put it on hold at my local library and found it the best of the week. Because that is what I do. I read what I hope to write. “Where’s My Sock?” turned out to be surprising! One of the main characters is a sock with clocks! And you know clocks are one of my favorite things. Just look at what I have on Pinterest!! And we all know my book “Annie’s Special Day” is all about time and clocks. this book is charming and has a sweet twist at the end, just like my book. So there is a lot to love.
