Something new can change the way you look; it can change the way you feel; and, in the case of new socks, it can change the way you walk--especially if you're a chicken. With a quirky sense of humor, retro style, and hip attitude, Bob Shea captures the excitement one irresistible chick experiences when he puts on a brand new pair of socks.
This is for readers who have decided that they can wear nothing but their superman capes or tutus or have discovered that the only food worth eating is macoroni and cheese. In other words, this book is told with "kid logic" and it embraces the affection we have for things when they're brand new.

Bob Shea has worked extensively with PBS Kids and Comedy Central, and is now a freelance art director for Nickelodeon. He lives with his wife and son in Connecticut.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2—In this lively, self-confidence-boosting tale, a pleased-as-punch chick shows off his new bright-hued footwear and feels ready to take on the world. With brief, often exclamatory sentences, the narrator enthuses over his snazzy socks (they "fit just right! Orange must be my size!"), revealing that he can now tackle the "big-kids slide." He even receives a phone call from the president, who wants to check out the special stockings. "What can't these New Socks do?" he wonders, before anticipating his next milestone: "Now I'm all excited to get pants!" The text, which presents a childlike blend of fervor and silliness, is wonderfully extended through the artwork. Plain backdrops in pale blue and white focus the attention on the protagonist. The chick's body is a yellow lima-bean-shaped blob; black-dot eyes, a beak fashioned from two half-moons, and thick-rimmed glasses define his face and add expression. His wings, rendered in simple black curves, are in constant flux, injecting humor and energy into the pictures. Varying perspectives add visual interest and show the sensational socks off to best effect. With its naive approach, direct narrative, and wry illustrations, this book will appeal to fans of Mo Willems's pigeon. A fun choice for reading aloud or sharing one-to-one.—Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
