Fox in Socks is a children’s book by Dr. Seuss, first published in 1965.

The book begins by introducing Fox and Knox along with some props (a box and a pair of socks). After taking those four rhyming items through several permutations, more items are added (chicks, bricks, blocks, clocks), and so on. As the book progresses, Fox describes each situation with rhymes that progress in complexity, with Knox periodically complaining about the difficulty of the tongue-twisters. Finally, as Fox gives Knox an extended dissertation on “Tweetle Beetles” who fight each other with paddles while standing in a puddle inside a bottle on a noodle-eating poodle, a fed-up Knox interrupts and pushes him into the bottle, calling it a “tweetle beetle noodle poodle bottled paddled muddled duddled fuddled wuddled fox in socks”. He then thanks an astonished Fox for all the “fun” and takes leave.
