Children's LiteratureTilly Trumble collects chairs, all kinds of chairs. She has a house full of them and the outdoors is full of them. She loves the way their arms open up and welcome her in. But she continues to search for that special chair that will be perfect by her fireplace. She shops at every yard sale, swap meet, and flea market in the area. One day she is surprised to find a dog in one of her chairs. When no owner is found for him, the two gradually develop a friendship. He turns up missing one day and Tilly searches in vain. Soon, that old dog returns and Tilly delightfully discovers that he is the four legged object that fits the best by her fireplace. The illustrations are delightful with lots of chairs to scrutinize as one reads. 2006, Harry N. Abrams, Ages 3 to 10.
