Description
The chair, in fact, is all appetite. Only by promising it a snack -- cheese puffs are preferred -- can Mrs. Piccolo free herself of its cushiony embraces. One day the chair can't wait to eat and hungrily follows Mrs. Piccolo (at a distance) to Friendly Fred's Fine Foods, avoiding arrest for strolling without a license by luring the blustery policeman into its billows -- and swallowing him down, slurp-gulp! Fred himself, then two obstreperous little boys and their mother, are consumed before the chair, using change found among its cushions, can pay for three bags of cheese puffs and drag home -- an un-easy chair overstuffed with people. Outside Mrs. Piccolo's house, the poor chair just has to b-u-r-p them up. When she returns. Mrs. P is astonished at what she sees! Zany fun, expressed in illustrations that catch the chair's personality without cartooning and capture every toothsome turn of this ideal story-time comedy.
