"New socks. Two socks.
Whose socks? Sue’s socks.
Who sews whose socks?
Sue sews Sue’s socks."
"Fox in Socks" introduces two delightfully funny characters, Fox and Knox, who converse almost entirely in rhyming tongue-twisters. Together they move through the story and describe each scene with rhymes that grow in complexity. Jump in and join the fun, but take it slowly because this book is dangerous for your tongue!
The most famous tonque-twister in the book: "a tweetle beetle noodle poodle bottled paddled muddled duddled fuddled wuddled fox in sox, sir!" is often referenced in popular media. Try saying that out loud! Is your tongue numb?
