The Sock Thief - Ana Crespo, Nana Gonzale

Felipe is The Sock Thief (Albert Whitman $16.99) in Ana Crespo’s new picture book. On his way to school in the morning, he sneakily snags socks off of laundry lines, leaving a ripe mango in their place. When Felipe finally arrives at the schoolyard, socks in hand, the reason for his thievery is revealed—Felipe and his friends use the socks to make a soccer ball. Nana Gonzalez’s colorful illustrations bring the energetic fun of the soccer game to life. At the end of a long day, Felipe carefully returns each sock to its rightful owner, unaware that the neighborhood is happily complicit in his daily ritual. Ages 4-8. Courtney Burtraw
