“He came with the couch” made me laugh out loud, Ella looking at me with big eyes, not exactly sure what just happened. I truly love David Slonim’s illustration style and sense of humor.
A strangely shaped, plush blue fellow with suspenders is attached to Sophie’s family’s new couch. It seems like absolutely nothing will remove him, not even a boisterous bagpipe performance–not even the plunger! The family consults with the doctor, who says that he needs to get out more, so the entire family takes the couch and its permanent passenger to the Grand Canyon, the beach, and Washington, DC. Will any of these exotic locales get him off the couch?
The page with ‘him and the couch’ at the beach was definitely Ella’s favorite, as she’s completely beach-obsessed these days. I just hope she won’t ask us to bring our couch next time we head to the water…
Can you tell I love LookyBook?
