Zigi the Alien and the Stinky Socks
Perfectly putrid or full-bodied and foul, the smell of stinky socks is heavenly to Zigi, a friendly alien. He just can’t get his fill and has come to earth to expand his impressive collection of one-of-a-kind smelly socks. Like a bee drawn to a flower’s scent, Zigi zips along the most likely of places, shoes and laundry baskets, to snatch up your fragrant footwear. You never know when he might slip into your neighborhood for a quick look around, so keep your toes curled and your socks pulled tight.
A fun, colorful fantasy book for young children aged 3-6 and early readers. Zigi the Alien will capture your heart; make you smile, and ignite your child’s imagination. This is book #1 in a new alien series by Nirit Littaney.

She has successfully joined the ranks of children’s books writers – but her stories, while humorous, encourage children to stretch their imagination while learning some valuable lessons. She Has wisely elected to have the very talented Abira Das provide the illustrations for this her second of four children’s book to appear on Kindle.
We meet Zigi, a friendly harmless alien who visits Earth to gather socks – stinky ones being his favorite: on his home planet of Nepi no one wears socks and Zigi and his friends play with socks the way Earth children play with toys. On this trip to Earth his search for stinky socks leads him to a high rise where he discovers a snoring man in front of a TV and creeps into the window and lifts on of the man’s sticky socks. He makes a trip to the beach (his planet has no beaches) and notices that the sun turns his normal green skin purple! While on the beach he lifts another sticky sock, then goes to a mall (his skin turns back to green out of the sun) and lifts a blue stinky sock from a shoe store patron. Next stop: kindergarten where he lifts a red stinky sock. Then on to a laundromat and finds a stinky white sock, and to a park where he finds a green sticky sock. With a bit of intuition Zigi goes to a gym and swipes a black smelly sock, and running from the gym he encounters a dumpster that contains a pick stinky sock with a hole it. 8 stinky socks total – so Zigi returns to his space ship to take home his fortune. Toys to share with all his friends!
The characters and the situation are delightful and this is a story that is bound to make children chuckle. Nirit knows her craft and continues to create terrific books for children. Grady Harp, May 15
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
What an adorable book. I read through it three times with my daughter and she never tired of it. The illustrations are cute and each page contains a mini-adventure as Zigi sneaks around to take stinky socks when people aren’t looking. It’s a funny and clever explanation for where all of those missing socks are going.
I would recommend this book to parents of young children as a fun picture book while parents read and also to younger readers.
