The Perfect Sofa

Fifi Kuo

Panda and Penguin love their old sofa – but when the springs poke through and the cover tears, they realise it is time to go shopping! They look at all sorts of sofas – too big, too small, too hard, too soft and even too 'arty'! And, of course, they end up with their 'perfect' sofa.
