About the Book

The third book in the Sock City series, It’s Big Time!, is a continuation of events from the previous book. Ray is a SCRAT (Sock City Retrieval Action Team) recruit who has a catastrophic, terrifying accident with his flyer. During his accident, he is instantly zapped from his microscopic size into a giant. Will Ray ever be able to return to his microscopic size? In Ray’s journey from this accident to his recovery, he experiences many things in this Land of the Giants. Back in Sock City, scientists are faced with difficult decisions about how to recover Ray. In the meantime, Ban, Ray’s little brother, jumps from running a puppy adoption to making a genius plan to save Sock City. A good friend from the Land of the Giants, Blake, unfortunately betrays the trust of Sock City, putting the entire civilization in danger. The discovery of Sock City is at hand, and plans are being made by a glory seeker, the mayor of Berrytown, to find it. In this microscopic society, they are faced with problems that may destroy their very existence. So far, Sock City’s advanced technology has protected their secret but for how long? Accidents happen, and how they are handled can make or break this situation. Damage control for Sock City is underway.

About the Author

This is the third book of the Sock City series, It’s Big Time. Since the publication of Christine’s first book, Sock City: Missing Town—Missing Things, it has been her pleasure to visit Franklin Elementary School teacher Tasha Hatten in North Carolina, where eighty-four children read her book and made a Sock City Village and clothing for this microscopic society for a class project recommended by Christine Carrington. For the past three years she has given a comprehension class at the prestigious Campbell University to the future teachers who read the hard copy of Sock City: Missing Town—Missing Things. Following a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Burlington, Massachusetts, Christine went to the Danvers Community Access Television, where she was interviewed by host Veronica Andrews and was compared to J. K. Rowling. Ms. Andrews stated, “You have given such a gift to so many people. It’s not just a book to children but also to the parents. Everything you share with us, others learn.” Christine is working on a play for a local theater in Raleigh. It all started at the age of nine when her loving mother swapped a household item for an old Royal typewriter on a local radio station. Her books contain old-fashioned values and lessons to be learned along the way instilled by her mother, who encouraged the love of family, friends, and others and always remembering to pray, have faith, and thank God. Pictures of the school, university, interview, and “The Firefly Song,” also on YouTube, can be seen on her website:
