New Socks by Bob Shea.
Little, Brown and Company: Boston, 2007.

I don't review many picture books coming out. I have a pretty good list already, and only a few new ones from year to year catch my attention enough to want to write about them.

New Socks, though very simplistic, is awesome. Large, cartoonish pictures of this little chick that's all eyes and socks. The style works for it. The thoughts conveyed are the grabber. It is exactly how young children think. My new socks are what's going to keep me safe. My new socks will get everyone's attention. The little chick also has a comedy routine going with its guessing game. The illustrations are perfect emphasis for the act. Very simple book (pictures and jokes), yet so hilarious.
