Tina's new socks are so wonderful she vows to wear them every day! But they begin to smell really, really bad because Tina will not take them off - even to be washed. The kids finally drag Tina down to the river and make her wash those stinky socks, driving away all the fish with the nasty odour! Tina's mom gets her a new shirt as a reward for finally getting her socks clean. A shirt Tina loves so much, she vows never, ever to take it off!
This story was inspired by Tina, at the Dene reserve across the river from Hay River, Northwest Territories. Tina had very colourful socks, and he made up a story where she kept switching her dirty socks for other people's clean socks. It was not very good, but Tina liked it. The dirty socks idea turned out to be a good one, and he kept telling sock stories. By the time Smelly Socks was published, Tina was grown up, had a baby and was living in Fort Smith. She was not a little kid anymore, but she was really happy that her story was finally going to be a book!
