Description

"A great addition to the literature on ducks. . . or socks!"
--Kirkus, starred review

"Bunting and Ruzzier create a lightly surreal and emotionally benevloent landscape. . . . The book's gentle takeaway [is] reinforced by Ruzzier's signature offbeat aesthetic . . . and Bunting's solid, conversational rhymes."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Such angst over a pair of socks has never been conveyed so well. . . . A perfect book for the newest reader, especially one with a grand sense of humor."
--Horn Book, starred review

"This is a whimsical delight for children whose parents clamor for phonics-based books."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Good fun."
--Booklist

"What makes this version particularly enjoyable are offbeat touches that mirror a preschooler's precipitously escalated emotions. . . . Bunting and Ruzzier work together well, capturing preschool fears and uncertain sentiments but, in the end, making it all O.K."
--The New York Times Online
"With its simple vocabulary and Seussian rhymes, this would be a fine choice for an emerging reader to read aloud."
--The Wall Street Journal

"The sonorous, Seussian cadence of Bunting's rhyming text lends itself to reading aloud, but older beginning readers up to a few challenging vocabulary words might also successfully tackle this on their own, especially once they've heard it read a few times."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
