"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! Soft-hued, adorable pen-and-ink and watercolor paintings adorn this winsome story that shares the familiar experience of not really losing something after all.

Duck is distressed. His favourite new blue socks are missing! Where could they be? "I know I put them somewhere near. How could they simply disappear?" Quirky illustrations offer a wealth of visual details to explore as Duck's frantic search leads him to ask for help from the fox, the ox, and the peacocks, the last of whom notice a hint of blue…in the one place Duck never thought to look. With similar rhymes but a more conversational feel than Dr. Seuss' classic Fox in Socks, Have You Seen My New Blue Socks? is a great choice for reading aloud or for sharing with early readers.

Simple story about a duck who tries looking everywhere for its favorite pair of socks only to discover ... they're on his feet! Reminded me of Dr. Seuss' early readers.
