Sophie's family has found the perfect couch, but it comes with something extra, and getting rid of that extra thing is impossible. In the end though, who would want to? This zany tale is more than a totally original fantasy, it's a tender story of a young child's love and acceptance and the small miracles that come with them. It's also very funny!
