||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? Accompanied by funny full-color illustrations.
||When Sophie's family finds the perfect couch, they find that it also comes with something extra--a something extra that is impossible to remove no matter how they might try.
|Editors Note 2
||Sophie's family has found the perfect couch, but it comes with something extra, and getting rid of that extra something is impossible. In the end, though, who would want to? This zany tale of upholsterosis (a chronic state of couch-potato-ness) is sure to tickle the funny bones of young readers and not-so-young-readers too!
