Gr 2-3Wallace, Zachary's stuffed purple pig, falls behind the couch. While trying to retrieve him, the boy discovers another worldone that can be reached behind any couch. He comes upon his Uncle Yankle, who always carries pistachio nuts; Ralphine, the prettiest girl in school; troops of slippers; swarms of toy cars and trucks; grazing dust balls; the Valley of Stuffed Animals, of which Wallace is now president; and the Lost Coin Hill. After some coaxing, Wallace agrees to step down as president and come home, and Ralphine joins Zachary for dinner. Early chapter-book readers will delight in this fast-paced romp through one of the most mysterious parts of the house. Inventive, appealing pen-and-ink illustrations appear throughout.Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY
