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?

   Son enjoyed reading this story from the point of view of a cat
My son enjoyed this novel, saying how funny and interesting it was, as the main character was a cat and the narrative was written in the point of view of the cat. My son liked the cat's thoughts and theories, as the cat was not privy to the culture and the clues of humans. My son says that this story stands out very memorable, compared to other books in his library.

It is a fantastic story to read and would help any child settle with a new sibling and enjoy having a new sibling in the house.
It was a very good book, interesting what they were going to write with socks. You should read it and write what you think is ok.
   It's so cute
It's so cute, because the baby is in the end... nie mind, I don 't want to spoil it for you. I loved it to read THIS BOOK.
Socks is the best book for little children to read if they are just beginning to read or if they like cats.
This is the best product of this type I have ever purchased.
I bought this book for my grandson and was extremely disappointed with the condition of the book.
   My Life was so Much Better Before the Baby Came
The story was funny, but dramatic. I am disappointed that there was not a series about socks, but glad that this story had a happy ending.
   Hasn’t aged well!
Normally I LOVE Cleary, but this one drove me a bit nuts and my daughter didn 't miss it when I just picked up something else before we finished! Cat Diaries by Betsy Byars is better if you have a cat loving chapter book enthusiast.
