The craftiest thieves of all time, who have yet to be caught. Perhaps you yourself have recently lost a sock. Who’s to blame? The Oddsockeaters!

Mysterious creatures that eat socks, turning pairs into oddments. Their secretive world has been revealed by author and illustrator team Pavel Šrut and Galina Miklínová in a thrilling yet funny tale of a sock-eating family, with old bachelor Mr Vavřinec and clumsy young sock-gobbler Hihlík.
