"I have lost my new blue socks. Did I put them in my box?" Simple rhymes - including socks, box, fox, and ox! - spin the tale of a small duck who waddles through the countryside, forlornly searching for his blue socks. "I'm trying not to be depressed. Without my socks I feel undressed." Finally, a sharp-eyed peacock sees a bit of blue peeking out of duck's lace-up shoes and the mini-mystery is solved! Soft-hued, adorable pen-and-ink and watercolour paintings adorn this winsome story that shares the familiar experience of not really losing something after all.
