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.

At the beginning of the third and final volume of this enchanting novel about creatures who steal socks, making pairs into oddments, the now grown-up Hihlík and his friends Ramík, Kawa and Bumka return from Africa to the urban jungle of Prague, where our heroes face a much greater danger than ever before… Fortunately, our famous foursome are joined by Prague oddsockeater Tonka, whose motto is: Two oddsockeaters are better than one and five can do more than four. Pavel Šrut and Galina Miklínová again show that being afraid but putting on a bit of a smile is better than just being afraid or just smiling.
