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 readersand not-so-young-readers too!
