Simon Sock

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Review

Simon Sock lives in the drawer with all the other socks, who often go on adventures: the sparkly socks go to parties, the sports socks do races and the woolly socks go to the park. Problem is, you have to be a pair of socks to be chosen, and Simon doesn't have a pair. He's on his own. He's odd.

Ted tries to help by pairing Simon up with some other stripy things in the house: a snake, a fish, but nothing works. Then, there's a voice from under the chest of drawers – Simone, Simon's pair! Simon is so happy – but it turns out that just because someone looks like your perfect match, they aren't necessarily the person who will make you the happiest.

A lovely, bright and sweet book about relationships and belonging.
