Stool Pidgin

Over at The Dizzies:
Sounds like a job for Weekend Stubble:

"In the 1930s, a novel was published which told its story from the perspective of a Chippendale chair." —"By the Yard," TLS, Feb. 9, 2007 (review of Deborah Cohen's Household Gods)
I will see you a chair-narrated novel and raise you one!

Turns out there are at least two books told from the perspective of a chair. Chinlun Lee's No 39 Animal Surgery is a Taiwanese children's book, which Geraldine Brennan reports from the Bologna Children's Book Fair is "a day in the life of a vet's dog from the perspective of a chair in the corner of the clinic."

Who knew?
