The Book with No Pictures

By B J Novak
A #1 New York Times bestseller, this innovative and wildly funny read-aloud by award-winning humorist/actor B.J. Novak will turn any reader into a comedian.
You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . here's how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .


Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)

"Conceptually radical . . . making the refreshing and contrarian case that words alone have sensory and imaginative vibrancy to spare." Mark Levine, "The New York Times Book Review" * " This book may not have pictures, but it's sure to inspire lots of conversations and laughs . . . A riotously fresh take on breaking the fourth wall. " "Kirkus, " starred review "This book is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and it s perfect for one-on-one sharing with a parent or caregiver. Expect requests for repeated readings." "School Library Journal" "Actor Novak s expert sense of comic timing is on full display in his first picture book . . . sure to deliver big laughs." "P"ublishers "Weekly" "Listeners will be tickled by hearing adults say ridiculous things . . . The comic pacing and foolproof theatrics ensure a wild and silly trip through the pages for everyone." "The Horn Book" "This picture book with no pictures knows a thing or two about both books and kid-friendly comedy . . . Once children get the joke, they'll want to play it on as many of their grownups as possible." "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books" "Unlike any of the children's books you read growing up." " Bustle.com" "Will have little ones laughing and finding a new appreciation for words." "Entertainment Weekly" "A perfectly-pitched tool for parental humiliation and childish glee." " The Boston Globe""
