Lisette's Green Sock

By Catharina Valckx
Illustrated by Catharina Valckx

A springtime fresh picture book about how socks, like friends, are always best in pairs

One day Lisette finds a pretty green sock. She’s delighted, until some bullies begin to tease her: socks should come in pairs; what use is one sock? Lisette searches and searches, but she cannot find the sock’s missing mate. Fortunately, her friend Bert helps her see the situation in a new way. And together they come upon the perfect solution in this ingenious story that celebrates the delightfully absurd within the everyday.

  • Droll characters, brimming with personality
  • Lovely ending gives a laugh for the road
  • Adept at understatement
