Socks Are Not Enough

Michael Swarbrick is an uptight, geeky fourteen year old boy whose life is plunged into disaster when he finds out that his parents are in fact secret nudists. Whilst enduring counselling with a painfully-trendy child psychologist, Michael is forced to explore his obsession with custard creams, his fear of donkeys and the reasons why his parents’ hobby affected him so much. You will never look at coco pops in the same way again…
