Timothy Cox is a young man who always follows through on his ideas. So, when he has the idea to keep wearing the same pair of socks without washing them for one complete month, he tells his dachshund Walt that he will do it and starts that very day! How long before he is banned from his school room? How long before his parents ask him to move out of his room? Can Timmy really wear them for a full month? Read this very funny story in rhyme and see what happens!  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
