Synopsis

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).
