Good Reads Summary
A book with no pictures?
What could be fun about that?
After all, if a book has no pictures, there's nothing to look at but the words on the page.
Words that might make you say silly sounds... In ridiculous voices...
Hey, what kind of book is this, anyway?
I'll admit it. I laughed. I probably laughed harder than a 20-something should at a children's book, but I could not help myself. I loved B.J. Novak's portrayal of Ryan the Intern on The Office, and I could really see his humor shine through his in his book. The beauty of this book is that it gives the reader the power to make this book hilarious for children. Instead of filling the book with delightful illustrations, Novak has created fun and silly words that are just as fun to say as they are to hear. I HIGHLY recommend watching Novak's video of him reading this book to a group of young children. Their laughter is purely contagious! There is no better recommendation than those children.
