    This story takes plot elements similar to "The Velveteen Rabbit" by Margery Williams, but explores topics such as divorce, abandonment, and the joy of being loved. Annaliese Easterling loved her sock puppet, Throckmorton, until a horrible incident happened that made her abandon the toy. When she rediscovers it she brings it to life with her love and friendship. Life is difficult in the Easterling household since their mother ran away nine years ago. The oldest boy, Evan, is angry, isolated, and [...]

    Throckmorton the sock monkey belongs to Annaliese Easterling, a girl who has been homeschooled and shut in her family castle nearly her entire life. Annaliese's mother mysteriously disappeared long ago, so she and her twin brothers are mainly seen after by caregivers and maids.One strange day, Great Grandmama Easterling sends invitations addressed to 49 sock monkeys in the family, including Throckmorton. The story takes us on a journey to figure out why monkeys need a party, what Great Grandmama [...]

    Throckmorton is certainly an engaging (and unique) narrator and the story of the Easterlings was interesting enough. Writing is decent, too. Just didn't captivate me and I have so little time to read these days I must be captivated to stay with it. If synopsis sounds good to you, though, do give it a try.

    Told from the point of view of Throckmorten, a sock monkey who just wants to do something of importance. Throckmorten belongs to Annaliese a lonely young girl whose mother, Olivia abandoned her and her older brothers when she was a baby. Why did Olivia really leave the Easterling estate? When a mysterious invitation for Annaliese's great grandma 90th birthday party is sent and addressed to Throckmorten, he wonders and hopes that it will be a memorable and important moment for him. As for Annalie [...]

    This is not a bad book by any stretch of the imagination. But I was disappointed. I felt it promised me something that wasn’t delivered. That is my opinion. I appreciate the effort and time it takes to craft a story. I hope many people enjoy it. That being said I began by loving this book. An intriguing idea flecked with mystery and peppered with classic children’s literary style of writing and early 20th century lingo. It was fun and exciting. Until it wasn’t. I hoped it would be magical [...]

    Cute, sweet, innocent story about a girl who has never met her mother and wonders where she is, hoping to meet her one day. I enjoyed the setting of the story; in the recent past (date unknown), in Maine. The unique part of this story is that it is told from the perspective of the girl's handmade sock monkey. A young girl who enjoys books that take place in the past, and likes books about mother-daughter and mother-father relationships would enjoy this book.I didn't give it 5 stars (really I wou [...]

    A very old-fashioned story, and I mean that in a good way. The style draws on Paddington and Winnie-the-Pooh, while still being unique to itself. The stumble, unfortunately, came at a strange and too-abrupt end. Ah, well. Generally recommended.

    An adorable and touching novel that would be fun to read with a little girl. Gave me a nostalgic feeling, wishing I could go back in time to get a glimpse of my stuffed animals and favorite toys from when I was young. Time to get out the needle and thread to make my own Sock Monkey.

    Unusual and engaging narrative voice. The main human character is 9 and the writing seems pitched to the youngest middle-grade readers (especially with the sweet illustrations throughout). Some of the material seems better suited for older readers, though - and I wonder if they would be as willing to engage with a book with this cover and narrator?

    A very cute, quick read for the younger end of middle grade, the story of a little girl told from the point of view of her sock monkey Throckmorton, definitely reminiscent of The Velveteen Rabbit.

    The narrator is a sock monkey. He belongs to a nine year old little girl in a very rich family whom all receive sock monkeys at their birth. The story involves the curious existence of the sock monkeys and the secret disappearance and forbidden subject of the girl and her brothers’ mother when they were little. It is beautifully and intriguingly written, and I honestly read it every spare moment I could find. It is not often you find a young novel written with such great mystery that you are q [...]

    Throckmorton S. Monkey is a sad sock monkey. He has been stuck in a smelly net in the corner of his keeper, Annaliese's room, for years. He used to be her favorite toy, but seems to have been forgotten as she gets older. Things change when great grandmama Easterling sends invitations to all her sock monkeys and keepers for a party. Annaliese's father and brothers must find their sock monkeys. The family has been in a funk ever since the mom left years ago. The father doesn't want anyone to talk [...]

    Annaliese Easterling and her sock monkey, Throckmorton S. Monkey, unravel the mystery of why her mother left her family when she was just a baby. This was a fun book to read with charming writing. The setting of the story is 1930s Maine, in a very well-to-do house that belongs to a very well-to-do family. The story is told from the point of view of Throckmorton, and therefore contains some of the magic young children will like involving stuffed animals coming to life. I think this would be a gre [...]

The main character is the sock monkey of the youngest descendant. The girls mother left when she was just a baby. In the end the two final meet and all is well.

Annaliese's mother disappeared when she was a baby. All she wants is to know about her, but her father has forbidden anyone in the house from discussing her.

    I really enjoyed this new children's novel. It was funny; I laughed and chucked often. And the deeper, sadder lines, the "secrets," are made less sorrowful by the slightly unbelievable, removed setting. The writing is mature enough, but simple enough too. I'll be interested in seeing how others react to this book.

    I am not really the ideal audience for books about the inner life of stuffed animals. Even though, in real life I frequently anthropomorphize stuffed animals. Go figure. Anyway, this is pretty twee, which is probably not surprising. Alas, not quite the brand of twee that I respond to. It's sweet and nice and would probably make very nice before bedtime reading.

    This is a great choice for 2nd to 5th grade chapter book readers, especially if they like a more old-fashioned feel. The story is predictable but still has some good plot twists, the writing is charming, and the sock monkey characters are especially interesting. I could see a sequel coming

    Great! Ease of reading, interest level good for grades 3 and 4 especially . The sock monkeys and their owners are invited to a birthday party for the lady who made all of the monkeys. A mystery surrounds the party and some of the guests.

    MN author, very interesting premise, I loved how the story is told from the perspective of the sock monkey. This should be considered for MHL Div 1, for sure!
