In desperate need of a dancing partner, Sock Monkey concocts a creative solution and reveals a few trade secrets in this sock-hopping sequel to the "Quirkiest Picture Book" of last year (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY). The Big Celebrity Dance is just days away, and gasp! Sock Monkey does not have a dancing partner. His friends are all out of town, and a famous toy actor like Sock Monkey can't go by himself! Is Sock Monkey doomed to stay home alone and sing the blues? Cece Bell's famous Sock Monkey is back with a polyester suit, some fancy moves, and a new argyle buddy who may turn out to be the perfect dancing partner. Get ready for a boogie-woogie good time!"
Cece Bell is the author-illustrator of SOCK MONKEY GOES TO HOLLYWOOD: A STAR IS BATHED. Of SOCK MONKEY BOOGIE-WOOGIE, she says, "I had so much fun drawing Sock Monkey's fancy dance moves -- picturing him shimmying the night away really made me laugh my head off. Sock Monkey is vain enough to think that he is the World's Greatest Dancer, and I agree!" Cece Bell lives with the real-life Sock Monkey and his friends, along with two dogs, one son, and her husband. She likes any dance that involves shouting the words "CHA CHA CHA!"
