The Book with No Pictures

I have reviewed and read a fair few books since I started blogging, but I was very confused by the title of this particular one.

The author is B.J Novak. I had no idea what the book would be about and the title lead me to believe it would be some sort of boring book for adults. WRONG!! It’s actually for kids or at least I think it’s meant to be.

As the title clearly implies, this book has no pictures at all. Instead it’s full of words, short paragraphs and rather silly sentences. I won’t give too much away but here’s just a snapshot to give the idea of the book as a whole.

Apparently the way to use the book is to have the reader read it out loud page by page and make the audience laugh. It certainly does make you laugh if read right. There’s a lot of silly noises and sounds and words to shout out loud.

It’s quite a silly books and the authors idea is to introduce young children to the powerful idea that written word can be an unending source of mischief and delight.
