The Sock Monster


Glenn Melenhorst

Sharon and I attended Virginia’s ‘Create a kids’ book’ course and found both the information, and Virginia’s industry insights invaluable. We not only learned about writing for picture books but about the formatting and illustration from artist-tutor Jacqui Young, which Sharon and I (as illustrators) found very informative.

After the course, I wrote ‘The Sock Monster’ and posted it to Virginia for assessment. What followed was a happy collaboration, resulting in the book being accepted almost immediately by Lothian.

We hope you enjoy it.
