Hurrah! Following on from his marvellous work with pants, Nick Sharratt has now turned his superlative illustrative skills to the similarly sniggersome subject of socks – and the result is a predictably satisfying treat for adults and children alike. Elizabeth Lindsay is in charge of the words this time, and has clearly had just as much fun exploring the linguistic possibilities of her subject as Sharratt has enjoyed with the potential for visual humour. From sockodiles and socktopuses to sockerels and the Sock Ness Monsters, you’ll be amazed at just how versatile such a simple garment can be; try giving out sock-shaped templates to your little ones, and see what they are able to create with them!
