Staff Reviews

Do you want to be the first to know about an amazing new talent from right here in Denver? Pick up A Couch for Llama! This delightful picture book features one of the cutest and most expressive animals I've ever seen, talks about dealing with change, highlights a truly relatable family (no perfectly clean living rooms in this book)--and shows a llama bouncing joyfully on a sofa! What more could you want? Kids will laugh, and adults will, too.

— Bethany Strout, Children's Book Buyer


When a family finds a surprising new home for an old couch, a llama becomes the happiest creature of all.
The Lago family really loves their couch. It's perfect for reading, snuggling, playing, and jumping. But all good things must come to an end, and, one day, the family realizes the time has come to replace it. As they drive home with their brand-new bright-red couch, though, it gets knocked off the top of their car into a field . . . where a llama tries to make sense of this new thing. At first confused--It doesn't talk It doesn't taste good It doesn't budge --the llama soon realizes how comfy the couch is and settles right in. Can the family get its furniture back--and keep llama happy, too? Leah Gilbert has written and illustrated a warm picture book that touches both the heart and the funny bone.
