‘I think we need a new sofa, ‘said Panda. 'This one is too old’.
Penguin and Panda are the best of friends and share everything, including the sofa!
Their journey through the book is a wonderful way to make choices together. Penguin and Panda are engaging and delightful, the book encourages everyone to enjoy what we have.
In the end of course, they discover that their original sofa is the best one for them both, and the book finishes with two exhausted characters on the patched up sofa, with all their things around them.
Fifi Kuo is from Taiwan and has studied in the UK at Cambridge receiving an MA in Children’s Illustration at The Cambridge School of Art. She has already been shortlisted for awards and gained Bronze in the Macmillan Prize.
The Perfect Sofa is to be published in the UK on 11th April by Boxer Books.
It follows Fifi’s amazing title of I Can’t/Can Fly.
Fifi has a brilliant way of using illustration to convey meaning and her use of characters like Panda and Penguin show enormous loveable characters.
A great book for young children and for parents too!
Recommend for ages 2- 22!!
