A string of adventures begins for Anna when she can’t find one of the socks she must wear as flower girl in a wedding the next day. Is Anna having silly dreams, as her mother thinks? Or is she visited frequently by strange little beings who have a fondness for socks, though they “Borrow” only one sock at a time instead of a complete pair. Anna’s delightful grandmother, baker of incredible peanut butter cookies, also plays a part in the story’s unfolding. In Peggy Grigowski’s chapter book, Anna Meets the Sock Stealer, readers learn what it means to borrow as opposed to stealing, and they learn about honoring differences and living together in harmony despite those differences.
