Former Columbus resident Ana Crespo will read and sign her illustrated children's book, "The Sock Thief, at Viewpoint from 5-6 p.m. on Tuesday June 2, and 10-11a.m. on Wednesday June 3. The later is our regularly scheduled story time so kids will get the added treat of hearing an author read from her work. 

Brazilian boy Felipe doesn't have a soccer ball. So, when it's his turn to take one to school, he uses a little bit of creativity and a few socks. Felipe is the sock thief, but finding socks is not that easy and the neighborhood pets make it even harder. "Au, au, au " a dog barks in Portuguese. Felipe wonders if he'll play soccer with his friends today or if he will be caught by a tattle-tale parrot? Along the way, Felipe leaves delicious mangoes in exchange for the socks he steals. After he swipes each pair, he twists and turns them into an ever-growing soccer ball. At the end of the day, he returns each pair of socks with a note to say thank you."
