Welcome to my tour stop for Sock Monster by Stacey E. Campbell! This is a children’s picture book and the tour runs December 14-18 with reviews. Check out the tour page for the full schedule.


When Billy’s mom calls bed time, Billy and his bear are in the middle of a riot of adventure and fun. Toys and clothes are strewn across the floor and Billy is reluctant to clean up, pick up, and head to bed.

Before going to sleep, Billy begs for a story. His mom tells him about the Sock Monster, a creepy crawly guy made of dirty underwear and missing socks. He slithers about gobbling up pieces of dirty laundry that children haven’t picked up.

The story stays with Billy as he tries to sleep; every little noise becomes the Sock Monster. Finally, Billy swings into action, picking up all his dirty clothes . . . just like Mom asked.

Sock Monster is a cute children’s story with adorable illustrations. Parents, grandparents, and babysitters alike will find it a fun and imaginative bedtime book.

What is a mom to do to when she walks into your room and finds a shirt, a sock, and more clothes on the floor? Why, she tells you the tale of the Sock Monster, of course. What is a Sock Monster, you ask? Let your shirts, your socks, and pants lie about the room, and you may soon find out the answers you seek!
Sock Monster written by Stacey R. Campbell is a charming children’s pictorial book introducing young readers the concepts of responsibility, tidiness, and consequences. Stacey Campbell knows how to appeal to readers of all ages. The plot of Sock Monster is not only a fun story for children to read or have read to them, but it is also a great resource for parents or guardians to utilize within their home environment. What adult wouldn’t want to find a way to get children to pick up their dirty clothes?
As a parent myself, I can’t speak for all who are around children or have them, but it is nearly impossible to get children to pick up their toys, let alone laundry. Upon reading this book to my young daughter, I asked her, “Do you have laundry on your bedroom floor?” She responded with, “Yes, oh no, the sock monster will visit me tonight, I better go clean it up.” And clean it up she did. Children’s books are meant to educate or entertain small children. Sock Monster certainly does both with its pages filled with vibrantly colored illustrations, and a creatively thought out modern day “folk tale.”
