From the bestselling creators of Barry the Fish with Fingers comes a hilarious new character - Simon Sock!
A wonderful new character from the bestselling creators of Barry the Fish with Fingers and the illustrator of Goodnight Digger.
Simon is an odd, stripey sock. He lives in the drawers with all the other socks. Every day two socks get picked to go on an adventure. The sparklies go to parties. The woolies go the park. The smarts go to school. Everyone has a pair... except Simon. Will he ever find his perfect match?
A hilarious story celebrating friendship and difference from an exciting new picture book partnership.
