Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary charms readers with yet another lovable character--Socks, a jealous cat who must learn to share his owners with their new baby.

Socks is one happy cat. He lives the good life with his affectionate owners, Mr. and Mrs. Bricker. Ever since the day they saved him from a life spent in a mailbox drop slot, Socks has been the center of their world. And he always has everything he needs--tasty kitty treats and all the lap room he could want!

But when a new baby arrives, suddenly the Brickers have less and less time for Socks. Little Charles William is the one getting all the attention. Socks feels left out--and to show it, he starts getting into all sorts of trouble! What will it take to make Socks realize just how much the Brickers care about him?

For generations, Beverly Cleary has entertained readers of all ages with the hilarious scrapes and hijinks of characters such as Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ribsy, and Ralph S. Mouse. Socks is no exception--as School Library Journal raves, it will make "both children and adults with roar with laughter."

Poor Socks! How will he adjust to having baby Charles join a household where he was once the center of attention. The book has wonderful insights into the mind of a cat like Socks and why he behaves the way he does. All of us cat-lovers should take note!
