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?

About the Author:

David Slonim is the author-illustrator of Oh Ducky! and the illustrator of Emily and Albert by Jan Ormerod and Moishe's Miracle by Laura Krauss Melmed, which was a New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he lives in Indiana with his wife and their four children. His daughter, Mary, was the inspiration for the character of Sophie in He Came with the Couch.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Sophie's family needs a new couch. After a full day of searching, they finally find one that is just right. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it comes with an odd-looking creature that just sits in the middle of the cushion. Resembling one of Jim Henson's Muppets, the creature, readers learn, suffers from upholsterosis and on doctor's orders that they get him out more, the family takes the sofa and the newcomer on a cross-country journey. Slonim's very funny picture book will appeal to children with a taste for the zany. Told from Sophie's point of view, the understated text is often at hilarious juxtaposition with the illustrations. The colorful artwork will appeal to fans of David Shannon's work as will the tongue-in-cheek storytelling. Libraries looking for a book that generates laughs need look no further.–Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA
