"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! This winsome story shares the familiar experience of not really losing something after all.
"A great addition to the literature on ducks...or socks!" (Kirkus)
"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)
