The plant that ate dirty socks by Nancy McArthur is not a common book.
It is about two brothers, one very neat, and one well, messy. The brother who is messy - Michael, is always ordering things from the back of magazines. So, when a packet of "amazing beans" come in the mail Michael doesn't really think about it, and gives one to his brother, Norman.
The plants grow, and soon socks are missing. After figuring out that Michael’s plant eats socks, they don't feed it for a few days, and it eats a library book. A lot of good laughs and wonderful story-telling make this nine book series one of the best kids books I have read.
