The author, A.J.Cosmo, has written a fun story about missing socks. One little boy kept losing his socks. His mom would ask him where his socks went. The little boy had no idea where his socks went, it was a mystery to him. One day he found a half chewed sock in his laundry basket, and he wondered what was going on. He decided to stay up at night and see what was eating his socks. A little after midnight his dour opened, and a funny little green thing entered his room and went right for the dirty socks. The little boy scared him and the little green monster went into the closet. Mom came into see what the noise was all about. Nothing could be found and she again told her son to go to sleep it was late. The little boy went to school the next day, and he and his friend, Ryan discussed dirty socks, and they decided to work together to solve the problem. When you read this story you will discover exactly what happens.
This is a story that had me a little confused. I liked the funny little green monster. I was not a fan of the homework as a part of this story, it had a very negative connotation.

Further investigation reveals that the monsters also love to eat bad homework and test results (now there’s an idea!), so the kids come up with a nice solution to the problem. In some ways I was a little bit disappointed that there was no opportunity seized here to discuss personal hygiene or the important of doing well in school. There doesn’t need to be a lecture, just a word or two here and there to get the idea into kids’ heads. That curmudgeonly comment aside, I did like the story and the monsters, and they message that you can help people even when, at first blush, they appear to be scary or beyond help.
And here I thought lost socks were orbiting Saturn alongside all the lost luggage! Shows what I know. I liked the overall story and the originality, and I consider this a worthy read. Besides, it has socks appeal!
(Review originally posted on Ian Wood's Novellum)
And it does explain where all of our socks disappear to, which has been a mystery to our family.
I enjoyed it enough to recommend it but I don't think it's one that will be remembered years into the future by either the adult reader or the child reader or child being read to.
UPDATE:My son is seven now and able to read it to me! We still really enjoy this story.
