I have been living with the assumption that we have two goblins living at our house.  One, ‘The Paci-Goblin’, moved out a few years ago when he successfully rid our home of pacifiers.  The other, ‘The Sock Goblin’, still lives with us and is hoarding individual socks in some mysterious place.  I actually dressed up as The Sock Goblin last year for Halloween!  I covered a hoodie jacket with the sad socks that had lost their partners.  Moms and Dads who saw me instantly ‘got it’ and burst into knowing laughter.  Every household understands the plight of The Sock Goblin!

What I never considered is that the socks are running away to join the circus!  Well, duh!  What sock wouldn’t want to be a part of a grand Sock Puppet Circus?  If I were a sock, I would have to be the lion-tamer… that is my chosen Sock Puppet Circus profession.

So, I’m guessing everyone reading this is questioning my sanity at this point.  I don’t blame you!  I’m completely serious, though.  Local Children’s Author, Nelson Elliot Gassman, has written a fantastically imaginative book entitled The Day the Sock Circus Came to Town and I just can’t get enough of it!  Make sure to keep reading to find out more about this book, get a link to the author’s bio, and find out how you and your family can be a part of Savannah Children’s Museum’s very own Sock Puppet Circus!  Hope to see you there!
