A beautifully illustrated picturebook about a sock that loses his pair and the identity crisis that ensues.
It’s Phil and Dale’s favourite time of the week - the WASH! The two socks impress each other with their acrobatics; flipping, spinning and shrieking, much to the disapproval of the other clothes in the washing machine. But why should they care? They’ve got each other and that’s all that matters... right?
When Phil goes missing, Dale is left contemplating life in solitude. After a brief encounter with a red shirt, he finds himself alone in the washing machine, lost and pink. When he is finally reunited with his buddy, Phil fails to recognise him and the socks must decide what being a pair means if one of you has changed....
Written in comic book form, with gorgeous crayon illustrations, this a tale of friendship and identity that will delight children and adults alike.
A brilliant message reminding us to celebrate the differences of our friends!
This story would be a good tool for in the classroom to discuss the importance of the language that we use towards each other. A lovely story to share with children. -- Reading Zone
