Marvelous Monday

Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? by Eve Bunting, illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier is a hoot.  This hilarious duck thinks he's lost his socks and as he wanders around asking his friends about his socks, it's a rhyming riot.  With all the fox and box going on, you'll think you've slipped into "Green Eggs and Ham", but no it's just duck and his socks. You and the kids will laugh out loud at this silly duck, but it was a fun read!
The illustrations were done in pen & ink and watercolor on Arches paper.  They are detailed just slightly silly themselves.  I love the purple socks down by the lake, and the strutting peacocks. When you're done reading you'll understand why this reminds me of my grandma and her glasses.
