Overview

In celebration of an enduring American craft icon, Sock Monkey Dreams dares to ask the question “What are sock monkeys up to when humans aren’t looking?” With voices alternately funny, sweet, clever, crabby, and more than a little tongue in cheek, the residents of the Red Heel Monkey Shelter, a refuge for abandoned sock monkeys, reveal a world that looks surprisingly like our own.

Sock newsmonkey Benny Hathaway and socktographer Link faithfully record the life and times of their fellow Red Heel residents. Each character, whether a celebrity, artist, doctor, or handymonkey, comes alive through interviews, stories, and full-color photos. Full-page dioramas provide the most detailed and fascinating window into the secret life of sock monkeys that perhaps has ever been published.
