Review: The Great Sock Secret

Do you know where missing socks go? Susan Whelan’s answer to this ageless question is a fun-filled tale in which a young girl protects the culprits from her mother’s best investigative efforts. With the family dog as her trusty assistant, Sarah does everything she can to keep missing socks and their new owners hidden. Sarah’s stupendous unhelpfulness at housework time is sure to trigger a wistful smile from more than one carer.

The Great Sock Secret works on several simultaneous levels. While offering a fun-filled bed-time tale that is sure to fill little minds with happy dreams, there is also an element of seek and find to every page. How many uses for socks can you find? Which sock use do you think is the most ingenious? Where else could a missing sock go? Which fairy do you like best? Gwyneth Jones’s adorable illustrations includes a Rastafarian, complete with dreadlocks and colourful beanie – my personal favourite.

The Great Sock Secret promises fun for all the family.
