The Book with No Pictures

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 . . .
 
BLORK. Or BLUURF.
 
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.)

  1. Parents: BEWARE OF THIS BOOK! This book is the worst. What a scam. My kids tricked me into reading it to them at bedtime – TWICE – and they had so much fun and laughed so hard that I have no idea how I will ever get them to fall asleep. Well played, Mr. Novak.

  2. Fun Read! I pre-ordered this ages ago, so it was a fun surprise to get today. A really fun read. My six-year-old (who can read) and my four-year-old (who thinks he can read) boys were laughing a lot. We read it twice in a row. I appreciate the silliness and interactive nature of the book, as well as the bigger lesson that even books without pictures can be fun. I initially rated it 4 stars because I’m kind of a stinker at giving full marks. But I’m changing it because we’ve been reading the book all day…

  3. Kids think this is hysterical. My kids think this is HI-lar-i-ous. We have read this 9 times in the last 48 hours. They are ages 4 and 7, and think this is the funniest thing they have come across in a long time. Very imaginative and interactive.
