The Sockmonster came from a conversation I had with my then seven year old daughter about the disappearance of her socks. It started out as silly voices and such and eventually evolved into what it is today. The Sockmonster tells the tale of four misguided, mismatched sock friends who go on a Journey of No Return to retrieve the match to one of the socks. It has a surprise ending and moral. Enjoy!
