We are already big fans of Nick Sharratt's illustrations and love so many of the other books he has illustrated. This book is no exception. There are so many fantastic and colourful socks throughout this story and we giggled at all the amazing sock related words. We loved the repetitive, rhyming text and laughed at the substitution of socks for ordinary and not so ordinary objects. Think sock planes, trains and submarines. This book really is hilarious and we would definitely recommend it.

This is a very fun book, with funny illustrations. A laugh out loud book, where everything is all about socks. Like a sockopotamus and there’s sockawockadodah in every page. My little boy really enjoyed this book.

The clue is the title of this book! Each page is about socks but not using them in the conventional way. We think it is very clever and LOVE the illustrations to support the rhyming verses on each page. There are lots of things to spot and clever use of colour. The last page needs a deep breath and slow pace or you will get your tongue in a twist!

This is a funny book all about socks. It's easy to read and love the rhymes, which appeal to little ones. The illustrations are colourful  and there are lots of big, silly words such as sockywockydoodah , which  my daughter thinks is hilarious. It's well written, a great read and makes you laugh.
