A simple, heartwarming story told in comic-book form about a sock that loses his pair.

It’s Phil and Dale’s favourite time of the week - the WASH! The two socks impress each other with their acrobatics; flipping, spinning and shrieking, much to the disapproval of the other clothes in the washing machine. But why should they care? They’ve got each other and that’s all that

Fun dialogue carries this sort of dumb story to an almost touching ending.

A great and fun little story about never losing sight of who you are, no matter how different you are.

I wish this had been around for my oldest son, who spent a lot of time mesmerized in front of our washing machine when he was three or four. He's now in his mid thirties, and I plan to give this to him for his birthday. I expect he'll love it as much as I do. A total charmer of a lost-and-found story.

A very cute book about a pair of socks who are friends. The story is told all in speech bubbles and would make a great one-on-one story.

I loved how much this book made my sons giggle. Fully belly laughs. Love this book!

Wonderful story and wonderful art!
This humorous book relies on ink, charcoal, and mixed media illustrations to tell the story of two socks that get separated in the wash. I'm sure just about everyone has wondered at some time or the other about where missing socks go. It often seems that one part of the pair of socks has gone awry in the machine.

Meh. Illustrations are cute but not very clear about the wash/ dry cycle. This works better when I treat it as a wordless book instead of trying to read all the dialogue.

It was a very simple story. Not everything has to match in order for you to be friends. Illustrations were great.
