'Tammy is safe at home, but her heart is with her father at the warfront. While her mother knits socks for the soldiers, Tammy slips a message inside each pair. But will her one special message find her father, and bring him safely home?

Based on a true exchange between Lance Corporal A. McDougall and a young girl, Message in a Sock is a gorgeous collage-style tale which pays respect to the ANZACs and their families, a century after the end of World War I.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
