A Box of Socks by Amanda Brandon and Catalina Echeverri (Maverick Books)

A Box of Socks

Written by Amanda Brandon

Illustrated by Catalina Echeverri

Socks! Dads hate them because they're usually the fall-back present whenever birthdays, christmas or Fathers Day (which is coming up soon, hint hint!) come around. But there is nothing quite like snuggling into a pair of lovely hand-knitted socks. A young lamb's granny is a sock-meister extraordinaire and loves to share her warm cuddly creations with the rest of the animals on the farm.

Our young hero decides that he'll help poor creaky granny out by distributing the socks to all the animals - but CALAMITIES! A missed footing, a heck of a trip and those socks and their carefully scribbled labels are scattered all over the place, and sorting out those mis-matched socks won't be easy. Perhaps the little woolly fellah can get some help?

A fun little tale of friendship, helping out and warm woollens. Even though it's sunny outside there's still a bit of a nip in the air, so don your comfy snuggly socks and settle down for a read!

"A Box of Socks" by Amanda Brandon and Catalina Echeverri is out tomorrow, 28th May 2015 from Maverick Publishing.

Charlotte's best bit: When all the animals end up with the wrong socks! Eeeks!

Daddy's Favourite bit: A fun and entertaining adventure that really socks it to you! I am so, so, sorry!
