Children's Book of the Month

A reason to read...

Michelle brings socks to life in this beautiful story about love and loyalty.

Odd Socks - Michelle Robinson

Suki and Sosh love their life. Each day they go to work together on their pair of feet, and each night they snuggle together in their sock drawer.

But then disaster strikes: Sosh spots that Suki has a hole.

Darn it! Sure enough, his warm, woolly wife starts to unravel, until one day Suki is nowhere to be found.

The rest of the underwear warn him not to go it alone - no one likes an odd sock.

But Sosh swears to find her.




Meet the Author - Michelle Robinson

Michelle grew up in Gloucestershire and loved making up stories and being silly. She put that to good use by getting a job as a copywriter, and wrote over 6000 radio adverts before moving on to television and the web. She soon got bored though, which is when she started writing funny stories for children and their parents to enjoy reading umpteen times. Her picture book, There's a Lion in My Cornflakes, won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards. She lives in Frome with her husband, son and daughter.

You can keep up-to-date with Sarah's world of silliness, bookwriting and her family's two cats on her fabulous Twitter account, which you will find here: @MicheRobinson

And here's a bit about the wonderful illustrator of Odd Socks, Rebecca Ashdown!

Rebecca grew up right by the sea, and could often be seen peddling around on her bike wearing jeans covered from top to bottom in felt-tipped doodles. She never stopped doodling, and after a Masters at Central Saint Martin's, Rebecca worked as as a graphic and motion designer, filmmaker and freelance artist. Her work combines drawing, printmaking and collage with digital techniques and her books include T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats.
