Joseph's search for his missing sock turns first into a game of hide and seek and then leads to unexpected encounters with a terrible monster that bears an uncanny resemblance to a pile of bedclothes. A really cleverly crafted story in both words - mostly dialogue - and pictures and a plausible explanation as to why a small boy's bedroom should get so untidy. Young readers or listeners will find plenty to interest them in the illustrations which are crowded with clothes, toys and other possessions though I must admit I found the colours both bilious and rather washed-out and a disappointment compared with the same artist's work in Maybe it's a Tiger.
