Socks is just a little tabby kitten when George and Marilyn Bricker bring him home. He is loved by the young couple, but senses that something is afoot. Gradually, Mrs. Bricker’s lap is growing smaller and smaller. . .
Yes, the Brickers have a baby. Yes, Socks feels displaced by young Charles William. And, yes, Socks displays his displeasure by acting inappropriately.
Can Socks find a way back into the hearts of the Brickers? Can he learn to love Charles William?
Of course! This is a very sweet little story from one of my favorite childhood authors.
