I am so incredibly proud of Mrs. Switchmania and all her hard work as she brought Sammy the Sock to life! Whether you are a fan of children's rhyming books, have a young one who's ready for an adventure, or just looking for an amazing gift, Sammy the Sock is for you. Grab your softcover or hardcover copy here!

Also, we're making a game! Here's our first teaser trailer to introduce you to Sammy the Sock: A Picturebook Adventure!


Do you wish your 1st Party Nintendo Switch games included an instruction booklet? Then you're in luck because my friend Rowan is here to save the day!
