The Book With No Pictures

Cover: 'The Book With No Pictures'

Staff Review: "The Book With No Pictures" by B. J. Novak


How can a book be a picture book if there are no pictures? B.J. Novak, best known for his writing and acting on "The Office," shows that a book can be fun without illustrations. But how? Well, the person reading the book has to say everything the words matter what. Even if the words have no meaning or are down-right ridiculous, the reader still has to say them, making this book a very fun read. This is a great read aloud for children of all ages, and fun for the adults reading the book aloud.

Audience: children | Genre: nonfiction, read-alouds
