From the acclaimed author of Drawn Together and Lift, Minh Lê, comes a playful ode to laptime storytelling.

This child and their parent are almost ready for story time — but first, they must find the perfect seat! This cozy picture book takes readers through various opposites (“Too rough! Too slippery!”) as characters search for just the right spot. Adorable art by acclaimed illustrator Gus Gordon invites adults and children to giggle all the way through to the heartwarming ending, when the answer falls right into their laps — because the perfect seat for a child is, indeed, right in a parent’s lap.

Don’t miss LET ME FINISH!, also by Minh Lê!
