Jory John and Pete Oswald are back with perhaps their most relatable (and necessary) story yet. Oswald's recognizable illustrations creatively assist John's playful commentary on the modern screen-dependent world. Though perfect for younger children, Couch Potato is a quick must-read for every age.
Meet your new pal-tato in the fourth picture book from the #1 New York Times bestselling creators of The Bad Seed, The Good Egg, and The Cool Bean, Jory John and Pete Oswald.
The Couch Potato has everything he needs within reach of his sunken couch cushion. But when the electricity goes out, Couch Potato is forced to peel himself away from the comforts of his living room and venture outside. And when he does, he realizes fresh air and sunshine could be just the things he needs...
Readers of all ages will laugh along as their new best spuddy learns that balancing screen time and playtime is the root to true happiness.
