Socks! by Tania Sohn

SocksWho doesn’t love the unlimited possibility of socks? Polka dotted, striped, green, yellow, even holey socks add just the right flash of whimsy to perfect any outfit.

If you’re thinking of changing your look, choose either baby socks and daddy socks. Add holiday cheer to your footwear, or turn your anklets into flying gear. For your next performance, choose something long for elephant-trunking or something brightly fanciful for puppet-making. The imaginative little girl – always in motion – keeps her feet well-heeled, and even more so when a sock-ish surprise arrives from her grandmother …

South Korean artist Tania Sohn makes her Stateside debut full of spirited energy and vivid color. The little girl – her spunk adorably embodied in her double pigtails – and her always-ready-to-play kitty companion, are a delightful duo of sock explorers, trying on every pair with gleeful abandon. Captivating story aside, Sohn’s stand-out strength is indubitably in her art: her dynamic illustrations imbue every page with vibrancy, from leaping frogs to curious paws to soaring elephants. Go ahead, grab your bestest socks and jump in.
