Children's Book Review: Socks For Supper
Author / Illustrator: By Jack Kent
What's It All About: A man and a woman live in a little cottage and have only turnips to eat they are so poor. Next door lives a wealthy farmer with a cow. The man and woman dream of cheese and milk to eat. The man looks for something to trade the wealthy farmer but all he can find is a pair of red socks. He takes them anyway and lo and behold the wealthy farmer trades him milk and cheese for the socks. The man and woman love the meal and want more but where can they get more red socks? The woman begins to knit more socks with the man's sweater and again he trades the socks for milk and cheese. What will happen when his sweater runs out? Read on.
Socks For Supper at Alibris in hardback. It has not been re-released as far as I can tell and that makes it harder to find one in good condition for little but here's a good try.
