The Lovereading4Kids comment

March 2016 Book of the Month Leigh Hodgkinson’s picture book is a stylish investigation into how and where to read a book. Goldilocks-like, a young boy tries out a variety of chairs and reading locations. Not one of them suits: some are too buzzy or grimey, one’s even too slippy slimey! In his expedition, the boy is joined by a succession of friendly companions, a cat, an owl, a frog, a little Martian, and they stay with him until he realises it doesn’t matter where you sit, a book is best anywhere – a book is best when you share. Each page is an adventure in its own right, there are definitely stories hiding in the upholstery of these splendid chairs! With its stylish design (Leigh Hodgkinson has worked with Lauren Child and the influence is clear) and friendly, appealing characters, this is just right for adults and children to share. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Are You Sitting Comfortably? by Leigh Hodgkinson

Hello there! Are you sitting comfortably? Are you sure? Have you found the perfect snuggle-up-and-lose-yourself-in-a-book place? Somewhere comfy, NOT itchy-fuzzy? Somewhere quiet, NOT buzz-buzzy? You have? Great! Unfortunately the little chap in this book isn't having quite as much luck as you are ...

Join one small book lover's search for the perfect place to sit (just for a bit!) in this beautifully illustrated and designed picture book by the talented Leigh Hodgkinson.
