Summary

Summary

Publisher Marketing: "I have lost my new blue socks. Did I put them in my box?" Simple rhymes--including "socks, box, fox, " and "ox"!--spin the tale of a small duck who waddles through the countryside, forlornly searching for his blue socks. "I'm trying not to be depressed. / Without my socks I feel undressed." Finally, a sharp-eyed peacock sees a bit of blue peeking out of duck's lace-up shoes and the mini-mystery is solved! Soft-hued, adorable pen-and-ink and watercolor paintings adorn this winsome story that shares the familiar experience of not really losing something after all. Review Quotes: "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" Review Citations: Publishers Weekly 01/21/2013 pg. 68 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover) - *Starred Review Kirkus Reviews 01/01/2013 pg. 71 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover) - *Starred Review Horn Book Magazine 03/01/2013 pg. 82 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover) - *Starred Review School Library Journal 03/01/2013 pg. 108 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover) - *Starred Review Booklist 03/01/2013 pg. 70 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover) Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 06/01/2013 pg. 455 (EAN 9780547752679, Hardcover)
