Socks Go Missing

Lori Orlinsky Author Interview

The Adventures of Lefty and Righty: The Windy City follows a charming pair of socks on a fun adventure where they experience the sights, sounds, and food of Chicago. How did the idea for Lefty and Righty start and how did that develop into this story?

It kills me every time I do laundry and socks go missing. One evening, instead of blaming my kids for losing them, I said sarcastically “It’s their fault. They climbed out the window and went downtown.” Suddenly, the idea was born and the whole family brainstormed all the fun things they could be up to!

The book contains some fantastic comic art. What was the collaboration process like with illustrator Kenn Vidro?

It was a wonderful experience to collaborate with Kenn, who truly has a gift for capturing characters and places with bold color, excitement, and impeccable detail. Kenn is the father of a family friend, and when I saw his artwork all over their house and through social media, I knew he was the one to bring this story to life.

Chicago is a big place. How did you decide which landmarks and experiences to include in the book?

With our family being huge White Sox fans, I knew immediately that the book had to center around the team – and what a fun pun between the socks and Sox. For the other stops, I honed into the places our family loves to visit. There are some nods to our neighborhood in the book as well, with the L stop and the hot dog stand.

Do you have more adventures planned for Lefty and Righty in future books?

Yes! I’d love to see them travel to other cities, and maybe even get lost in the airport! Now that Kenn and I have given personalities to Lefty and Righty, there are so many fun things they could do!
