When Dad loses his car keys, toddler Mary suspects that they have ended up down the back of the chair so Dad begins to search.

But what an odd assortments of objects are living down the back of the chair!

But what will a troubled father win from down the back of the chair?

Review by

I don't agree with all of the people who gave it 5 stars. I feel that students need substance in their books, especially at an early age. They also, however, need books that are just fun and this is one of those. It is a good book but not one that I would read again.
