The Couch Was a Castle

Ruth Ohi, the award-winning illustrator of over 40 children’s books, has created two new picture books, Clara and the Bossy and The Couch Was a Castle featuring guinea pig characters and aimed at primary aged children.

The Couch Was a Castle is a lighthearted read aloud in which two playful youngsters make the couch into a variety of settings for their games. There are ten rhyming scenarios, with straightforward vocabulary. During these times of video games and MP3 players, this amusing book depicts creative ways for readers to play. This book would be a great writing starter for primary students, who could use their imaginations to discover new ways that a couch could be used during playtime.

The Couch Was a Castle

Wild cowboys, fierce pirates… Burt and his brother play all kinds of pretend games on their couch. But when some couch-bound theatrics end in tears, it’s up to Burt to rescue the day.
