Pablo and His Chair by Delphine Perret


Pablo and His Chair by Delphine Perret

As a birthday gift, Pablo receives a chair. This makes him angry, and he locks himself in his room with his present, determined not to sit on it. But then he starts playing around with the chair and by the end of the day, he has become a chair funambulist. He sets out to into the world and is soon performing in amazing places, drawing great crowds...and he does eventually return home (and finally sit on the chair at the dinner table).


Pablo is disappointed when his grandmother gives him a chair for his birthday. But, with the power of his imagination, his chair becomes his ticket to tour the world on an acrobatic adventure. When he returns home, Pablo s chair is waiting for him at the table, where his family gathers to hear him tell his tale.
