In celebration of an enduring American craft icon, Sock Monkey Dreamsdares to ask the question What are sock monkeys up to when humans arent looking? With voices alternately funny, sweet, clever, crabby, and more than a little tongue in cheek, the residents of the Red Heel Monkey Shelter, a refuge for abandoned sock monkeys, reveal a world that looks surprisingly like our own. Sock newsmonkey Benny Hathaway and socktographer Link faithfully record the life and times of their fellow Red Heel residents. Each character, whether a celebrity, artist, doctor, or handymonkey, comes alive through interviews, stories, and full-color photos. Full-page dioramas provide the most detailed and fascinating window into the secret life of sock monkeys that perhaps has ever been published.
Whitney Shroyerand Letitia Walkeradopted their first sock monkey in 1996 and an obsession was born. With the arrival of Benny Hathaway, the monkeys found their voice, and tales of sock monkey exploits began publication in a local humor paper, The Asheville Disclaimer. Michael Traisteris a professional photographer whose subjects previously included musicians for several labels and for magazines like Magnetand Spin.
