The Book That Made Me: David Almond 20/03/19
Are You Sitting Comfortably?
The little boy in this book is looking for the perfect place to read his book - somewhere comfy, somewhere not stinky, and somewhere light with no strange hooting or monsters in the background! But nothing he finds is quite right.
As he explores, the boy finds a number of animal friends that help him realise that the mighty task of finding the perfect place to read is in fact very simple: 'But wait, hang on - Yes! That's it! It doesn't matter where you sit! A book is best anywhere… A book is best when you share.'
Hodgkinson's recognisably quirky and appealing rhyming text and illustration celebrates the enduring importance of reading together.
