In his debut picture book Sock on the Loose, author-illustrator Conor McGlauflin takes you on a fun, sock-filled, adventure about finding yourself and discovering your way back home.

Socks come in twos,
snuggled up in your shoes.
At night they sleep tight,
matching pairs in a row.
Until—wait a minute!—oh no!
Where did Blue Sock go?...

After its twin doesn’t come back from the wash, Blue Sock decides it wants to explore the great big world outside its drawer. Just like you, there are so many things a sock can do when given the chance to try something new!
