Praise for The Truth About the Couch

A New York Times Bestseller
An Indie Bestseller

"Full-on mayhem . . . Via this collection of musings, Rubin (High Five) proves as quippy as ever . . . perhaps prompting human readers to regard their own settees in a new and more appreciative light." --Publishers Weekly

"A hilarious send-up of conspiracy theories and adults' attempts to shelter children from the real world . . . Funny and thought provoking.." --Kirkus Reviews

"The supremely silly story seems straightforward and then delightfully defies expectations, offering wildly inaccurate insights into furniture history and behavior. Garrulous graphite pencil and watercolor illustrations capture the hilarious high jinks with style and exuberance, and the clever stage-on-a-page depiction is a snazzy touch. A splendidly offbeat ode to the seemingly simple sofa." --Booklist

"A very clever fox argues that sometimes a couch is more than a couch. If you want something fun to read with kids ages 3-7, this book is a dream." --The Washington Post
