We chose this book for Catharina Valckx’s storytelling orginality and humour, and for her perfectly timed celebration of the absurd within the everyday.

Lisette’s Green Sock


A springtime fresh picture book about how socks, like friends, are always best in pairs


  • Description

    One day Lisette finds a pretty green sock. She’s delighted, until some bullies begin to tease her: socks should come in pairs; what use is one sock?
    Lisette searches and searches, but she cannot find the sock’s missing mate. Fortunately, her friend Bert helps her see the situation in a new way. And together they come upon the perfect solution in this ingenious story about how socks, like friends, are always best in pairs.
