Description

Socks is the name of a character created by Beverly Cleary. He is a young tabby cat with four white paws, and he lives happily with a young married couple, Marilyn and Bill Bricker. The center of the Bricker household, Socks rules it affectionately but firmly.

Into this loving home, however, comes another pet. This creature has a small, wrinkled, furless face, and Mr. and Mrs. Bricker spend an inordinate amount of time trying to burp it. Its arrival fills Socks with jealousy and a terrible anxiety. How the rivalry between Socks and Charles William, the Bricker baby, turns into an alliance makes a domestic drama both touching and funny.

Although her story is about a cat and faithful to his point of view in every detail, Mrs. Cleary demonstrates with it the emotional upheaval experienced by a child who must learn to share his parents. As young readers come to understand Socks and his problems, they will gain a new understanding of themselves. But, most of all, they will laugh.

Praise for Socks

"A favorite author brings alive the amusing devastation of the happy home life of Socks, the cat, who is unnerved by the addition of a new baby to the household. Told in Socks' voice, the story delivers a hysterical account of adjusting to change. Both children and adults will roar with laughter at Sock's antics and cringe at his misdeeds." — School Library Journal
