Amazon DescriptionSomething new can change the way you look; it can change the way you feel; and, in the case of new socks, it can change the way you walk--especially if you're a chicken. With a quirky sense of humor, retro style, and hip attitude, Bob Shea captures the excitement one irresistible chick experiences when he puts on a brand new pair of socks.
This is for readers who have decided that they can wear nothing but their superman capes or tutus or have discovered that the only food worth eating is macoroni and cheese. In other words, this book is told with "kid logic" and it embraces the affection we have for things when they're brand new.
One Potato Review
This looks like it took about fifteen minutes to illustrate and write, but you could not imagine more effortless exclamations, and you probably could not conceive a better first book. Which isn’t coincidental:
“Hey New Socks… I’d like you to meet someone… Wood Floor! Whoa!”
In clamorous orange and yellow - with a couple of blue patches (to denote thoughtfulness) in between.
