Book Synopsis



From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dragons Love Tacos comes this hilarious picture book about everyone's favorite piece of furniture.

Pssst! Hey. I'm here to tell ya what the furniture police don't want you to know... Listen close. I'll explain everything.

Most people think couches are just for sitting, or maybe napping, and don't give it a second thought. But did you know couches can go berserk if you don't feed them a steady diet of coins, cell phones, and remote controls? And did you know some couches are grown on a farm? (Where do you think the term couch potato comes from?) Some come from two chairs who love each other very much, and some are actually aliens in disguise. And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

This laugh-out-loud send-up of conspiracy theories brings Adam Rubin's trademark zany humor together with the richly expressive artwork of Macanudo creator Liniers to explore the totally, completely true (really! maybe?) history of the world's most beloved--and misunderstood--item of furniture.
