Though there isn't a dud story in the bunch, one of the most memorable is the time Poppleton visits a mattress store to purchase a new mattress. He decides he must test the mattresses out, and lies down, belly up. The long suffering saleslady (a hilariously drawn crotchety cat in pearls and pince nez ) is asked by Poppleton to provide an increasingly ridiculous list of items in order to recreate his home environment so that he can make an informed decision on a mattress. With mounting annoyance, she hauls over first a magazine, then some crackers, then a television... Poppleton's last request, touchingly, is "Bluebirds. I need bluebirds." Perfect.
