When a family finds a surprising new home for an old couch, a llama becomes the happiest creature of all. The Lago family really loves their couch. It's perfect for reading, snuggling, playing, and jumping. But all good things must come to an end, and, one day, the family realizes the time has come to replace it. As they drive home with their brand-new bright-red couch, though, it gets knocked off the top of their car into a field . . . where a llama tries to make sense of this new thing. At first confused--It doesn't talk! It doesn't taste good! It doesn't budge!--the llama soon realizes how comfy the couch is and settles right in. Can the family get its furniture back--and keep llama happy, too? Leah Gilbert has written and illustrated a warm picture book that touches both the heart and the funny bone.… (altro)

As soon as I saw that cover I knew I had to absolutely have this book.

The Lago family loves their old blue couch. Blonde mother, dark-haired and dark-skinned father, and three children with light brown skin and dark hair (or dark fuzz in the case of the baby) have many happy days reading, cuddling, playing, and chasing their cute little black scotty dog. But the couch has seen better days... it's time for a new couch.

Unfortunately, on their way back from the city with a brand new, cheerful red couch tied on top of the car, it slips off! And that's when the fun begins. Discovering this strange object in his field, Llama tries to be friendly. He tries to share. He does a few taste tests. Finally, he figures out what a couch is for - comfy sitting!

When the Lago family returns and finds their couch, Llama has settled in. Is there a way to make everyone happy?

The simple text is delightful, and just the right length for storytime. The real star here are the soft, expressive illustrations and especially that goofy llama! Drawing on familiar plots of stories like The Mitten, where an animal discovers a piece of furniture or clothing and tries to figure out what it is, Llama's efforts to figure out what the couch is for just made me giggle repeatedly. His little friend the blue bird, expressive ears, and stubborn demeanor are just icing on the couch-cake.

Verdict: You must have this for storytime immediately! Buy at once!

The Lago family decides it's time to replace their well-loved couch. When the new couch they are bringing home flies off the top of their car and into Llama's field, Llama is suspicious, but soon falls in love. When the Lago family realizes what has happened, they have a great idea that will make everyone happy. ( )

What does an adorable llama do when it suddenly has its own couch? It does adorable things, that's what! I loved the illustrations and the story was super cute. I am going to buy it for all the tiny people in my life so they can share my love of llamas. ( )

A llama's greatest wish is granted. . .one he didn't even know he had.

An active, full-of-life family is in dire need of a new couch. Off they go to the store, but while transporting the new piece of furniture back home, something goes terribly wrong. This sudden moment of bad luck is llama's fortune. He faces a couch in his pasture. . .now, if he can only figure out what it is and why it isn't as tasty as he'd hoped.

This is one to make llama fans' hearts beat faster. The llama is one curious creature, and really doesn't know how to handle that couch. His attempts at figuring it out are hilarious and take a very understandable progression. . .for a llama, that is. But even the Lago family has a wonderful part in all of this. They're easy to relate to and full of life and love. Young listeners and readers will find their first couch adventures funny too. Mom's might even cringe a couple of times.

The illustrations are just right and let the humor flow. The llama's and Lago's expressions in these pictures are priceless at moments. It's entertaining to flip through and gaze at these time and again.

This one gets a huge thumbs up from me and my kids. ( )
