It's silly and gives an ache in the belly.
Tina needs socks, but all she will get is a pair of black socks in her town. So, she must go far away across a river to get a funky one. But, her mom refuses to take her, so she cajoles her grandpa to take her by boat. And the fun begins. Long-winded rowing back and forth gets her a pair of socks that she LOVES! She loves it so much that she refuses to take it off; what happens afterwards is hilarious.
We love PBs. We hear you; we don't have to repeat it every time. But did we say that we LOVE silly and humorous PBs more than the others? This book will make you laugh every time you read it. We all know at least one Tina in our life, and we laugh even more when we think of our Tinas. The illustrations are perfect for the story - they make you giggle even more.
A necessary addition to the family reading time.
