Reader’s Review: What We Found in the Sofa and How it Saved the World

What We Found in the Sofa and How It Saved the World by Henry Clark is an abnormally creative book about three middle-school friends who learn the meaning of friendship and trust while fighting evil, all with the help of a zucchini-colored crayon. The story begins with an old couch on the side of the road, of all things. River, Freak, and Fiona find a series of strange objects between the cushions, including the zucchini crayon, that lead them to an old mansion where a mysterious man lives. They quickly find that everything that’s been going on is much more  complicated than they’d realized – especially the couch and the items found inside.

The book was much, much better than I thought it would be. After reading the back cover, my thoughts were that it wouldn’t be very great. But, after reading it, I can say that I was too quick to judge. This book is very exciting in a way never-before seen in any regular story. I did think that the story was a bit unrealistic, but any fiction novel is. Overall, I would say that the book will appeal to anyone looking for an unusual choice of reading. It’s well suited for any kids between the ages of 9 and 14, I would say.
