Animals vs. Furniture recounts the life-or-cushions struggle between the eponymous creatures and household objects, as witnessed by a seemingly hapless narrator.Excerpt ˇ
I noticed something funny last week at breakfast, when my pet mynah bird stopped singing his usual song. His usual song goes: "Lickety split, lickety split, I am covered in spit, I want out of this pit."
But last monday he was mumbling something suspicious, some other rhyme that sounded like "Bats and bears break all the chairs because they're there."
"Hey!" I said. "What's that supposed to mean?"
