A star is born!
The famous toy actor, Sock Monkey, has been nominated for an Oswald Award. But to attend the ceremony, he must do something terrifying - he must take a bath. Yikes! Just the thought of bathing makes Sock Monkey dizzy with fear. Stinky soap! Icy water! Scratchy towels!

Bearing all the hallmarks of a cult classic, this heartening tale will have sock monkey stalwarts everywhere heaving a sigh of approval - and perhaps furtively jotting down recommended washing instructions.

About the Author
Cece Bell lives in Virginia with the real-life Sock Monkey and his friends, as well as two dogs, and one husband. "Our Sock Monkey has never bathed in his life," she says. "One day I realized just how filthy he really is. So I thought I'd write a book about it. I knew the only thing that would inspire Sock Monkey to get clean would be something that appealed to his vanity, and receiving a big award was it!" Cece Bell likes to draw, paint her house funny colors, read books, and make stuff for her friends. Unlike Sock Monkey, she bathes frequently. This is Cece Bells first book.
