Any additional comments?

This is cute little adventure story.

It's hard being 9 yrs old.Jack is having a rough day. He's been in trouble at school. Then is in trouble at home for hiding his sisters doll

Jack and his family visit a consignment store where Jack falls asleep in a ugly bean chair. After Jack falls asleep he finds himself in a weird furniture "graveyard" with some interesting furniture characters like the tiger ottoman, secretary desk, murphy bed all while trying to find his way back to his parents .My grandsons laughed at the story every time his sisters doll was mentioned.

They liked Jacks adventure up until the laughter. They did not like the voice that was used for the laughter. They thought it was creepy (7yr old) and scary(5yr old), they were enjoying the story until that point. Then they asked to read it from that point. They are a little under the target age listed for the book.

.Richard Rienman did a good job with the narration and the voices of the characters.. He did a good job with Jacks emotions and fears throughout the story.
