The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak

Novak, B.J. (2014). The Book with No Pictures. New York: Penguin.


In this pictureless picture book, there is only one condition: the reader must say all the words, no matter how silly.

This book may not have any illustrations, but the text alone keeps children engaged and giggling. Adults have to take on the character of a robot monkey and say strange words that children will find hilarious.

It is not surprising why this book has become a hit with young audiences. It is funny and silly and lets readers be a little silly. Overall, I have no criticism of this book, warranting it a 5 out of 5.
