Book Description:

Do you ever wonder what happens to socks that get lost in the dryer? Join Lefty and Righty for the adventure of a lifetime as they sneak out of the laundry room with a destination in mind.
My Review:
This is the story of a pair of socks that hop out of the dryer and go on a great adventure in Chicago.  I have always wondered where the socks went and now, I know. This pair thought they should go find the ultimate socks, The White Socks! How fun!
The book, in rhyme, follows the duel as they go to different landmarks. In the book, the landmarks are highlighted in red which corresponds with "fun facts" in the back of the book. I have seen other glossaries in other books, but this was a cool way to include them.
The rhyming was great and for older kids they will love the sing-song rhythm. Younger children will enjoy the illustrations which are boldly displayed on each page.
Great book to read over and over. 4 stars!

Adventure books are a thrilling genre of literature that take readers on exciting journeys to far-off places and exotic lands. These books often feature courageous heroes and heroines who must overcome incredible odds and face dangerous challenges to achieve their goals. Sorry for this. Our author lounge site got some technical problems. I have the utmost respect for an author like you. This review delivers me to get this book. It sounds so exciting and fantastic. I already bookmarked the other one from Alma Lightbody; I felt adventurous already; thanks for this.
