Over the Counter #39

Well, the latest book to catch my eye as it passed over my library counter and under my scanner this week was Socks Appeal by Brenna Maloney. C'mon how cute is that sock hamster!?

From the publisher Stash Books - a division of C&T Publishing:

"Turn your favorite socks into adorable bunnies, kittens, hamsters, turtles, penguins, and more. 15 projects are categorized by skill level, from super-simple to more advanced. Your dryer ate a brand new sock? No worries—stray singles can now become the perfect gift in just an hour.

Enjoy making whimsical stuffed animals using baby socks, knee socks, crew socks…any kinds of socks rock! Give your critter’s face plenty of creative expression by embellishing with your favorite buttons and embroidery. Several projects are easy enough for children to make for their own toybox, but you’ll want a bunch of these irresistible cuties for yourself, too! Check out the Socks Appeal website."

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
