Our Big Blue Sofa

Written by Tim Hopgood

Our Big Blue Sofa Synopsis

Is it a hot air balloon? Is it a taxi? No! It's . . . a sofa! Jessy and Tom love their big blue sofa. They love pretending it's a submarine. They love riding it like an elephant. And most of all, they love bouncing on it. Until one day . . . THUD! A joyful adventure story about family life and imaginative play, featuring bright, colourful artwork that will appeal to all ages. Our Big Blue Sofa by Tim Hopgood was the winner of the Cambridgeshire 'Read It Again!' Award and was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal. This warm and funny book from the award-winning author-illustrator of WOW! Said the Owl is as fresh and original as when it was first published. The perfect book for any child who has ever bounced on the sofa - and every adult who has ever told them not to!
