I had been waiting to see this book for years, and it didn't disappoint. Candace Ryan spins a darling tale of a house and furniture that come alive, and Nathan Hale's terrific illustrations make the story complete.Jeremy is a typical kid, but when his homework is destroyed, his teacher, Mrs. Nuddles, is not happy about the excuse he uses. It seems Jeremy's furniture has been eating many of his school projects. Finally Mrs. Nuddles has had enough and schedules a home visit. She is shocked to discover that Jeremy isn't making things up--he lives in a gorvilla and all his furniture is alive!
Though Jeremy asks the furniture to behave, it has a good time teasing Mrs. Nuddles. From the armapillows to the chandeldeer, the entire house is teeming with animal furniture--and trying Mrs. Nuddles' nerves. Jeremy is getting onto more and more trouble. And when the famous homework eating Vulchair grabs Mrs. Nuddles, will Jeremy be able to save her?
This is a great story with clever turns of words. I can see kids naming their own furniture and having hours of fun with this giggle-inspiring concept.
