Fox in Socks Meaning

What is this book really about?

The Flipside

Of course, some English majors might consider Fox in Socks through a more linguistic lens. They'd lay down ideas such as "words being signs" and use such hoity-toity terminology as signifier and signified. Silly English majors. We would never do something like that… here.

But we totally go hoity-toity on Fox in Socks over in our "Symbols, Imagery, and Allegory" section. Click on over if you want a more theoretical take on what Fox in Socks is really about. But fear not. We promise you won't need an advanced degree in semiotics.
