Aunt Hasty has sent Pinch her couch.
Pinch does not want a couch.
Pinch does not need a couch.
Pinch does not like this couch.
It is a terrible couch!
Can his friend Dash help Pinch
solve this terrible problem?
Or will Pinch never sit in
his snug chair again?
A Junior Library Guild Selection

Pinch is hungry. But he is too lazy to make his own soup.
Dash is a great cook. But he never puts enough pepper or hot sauce in his soup.
Can two friends make the perfect pot of soup? Or will a spat about spices spoil their lunch?
Meet Pinch & Dash, two good friends who do things differently---but always stick together in the end.
Available in hardcover & paperback
Also available as an Audio Book from Recorded Books.
Stay on the look-out for more adventures next year when PINCH AND DASH star in THE TERRIBLE COUCH!

A very lively review of Pinch and Dash
"Daley's effective use of repeated words and phrases, simple vocabulary, and grouping of events into four short chapters makes this very accessible to novices, while the gentle situational humor will also help facilitate reader's digestion of this easy reader." --- The Bulletin
"This amusing young reader's chapter book not only contains an humorous story, but it also exlores the idea that sometimes you have to make compromises for the sake of your friends."
Though the Looking Glass Review by Marya Jansen-Gruber
"...filled with ear-pleasing word play..." --- KidsVT
