Fabiana Cavelaris explores the curious phenomenon of mysteriously disappearing pair of socks as she tells the strange and wonderful experience of a boy named Hubert in her illustrated children’s book, The Sock Keeper, released through Xlibris. In a tale of unexpected twists, Hubert finds that losing socks meant supporting a gallant, top-secret cause.
The Sock Keeper begins in a fear-provoking note when Hubert, with his awful habit of losing the other pair of his socks, hears strange scuffling noises while having trouble sleeping one night. Too scared to find out, Hubert endures the scary noises, lying petrified in bed every night while picturing every hideous monster his frightened imagination could conceive. He tells his smartest friend in school, Andrew, about it and they hatch a plan to discover the intensifying mystery. Through their exploits, readers will discover a wonderful, well-kept worldwide secret mission that has involved other children and even the Post Office.
Flawless in hiding its twists and turns, The Sock Keeper is the perfect thriller to keep young kids at frightened, rapt attention, all the while keeping under wraps the heartwarming essence of the story – compassion for others. But what do Hubert and Andrew actually discover?
This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
