Little Sock - School Library Journal
Little Sock longs for adventure. He’s tired of the same old, same old—being worn, getting dirty, being thrown in the wash, and put back in drawer. He dreams of the magical place he’s heard of where every day is a new adventure—Sock City. One night, determined to make the dream a reality, he sneaks from the drawer to the secret tunnel to Sock City found in the back of the dryer. His brave trek through a dark, scary tunnel is rewarded when he emerges into the fabled land. Kia’s straightforward text is bolstered by Park’s lively illustrations that make excellent use of varying perspective, color, and humorous detail. The spread of the various socks in Sock City will captivate readers as they take in the variety.
