Publisher's Summary

This innovative and wildly funny read-aloud by award-winning humorist/actor B.J. Novak will turn any listener 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.)

very expensive for a super short story.

I don't understand why everyone loves this book it's barely even a book. It says it's four chapters. the first chapter, lol, is info on author etc. The second, is some 2 page long gibberish...which then for some reason, the narrator changes to a female who basically reads the entire thing word for word again... and that's the third chapter. The fourth awesome chapter is the end credits. very expensive 10 minutes worth of useless junk.

Funniest kids book ever!

If you can read with voices and emotion, if you can make letters on the page turn into silly sounds, if you love to make your kid squirm in anticipation and giggle, this is the book for you! The book MUST be read exactly as written. Those are the rules. Who needs pictures, when the person reading the book HAS to say they are a monkey and they MUST read with a monkey voice? Pictures are irrelevant when the person reading says "BA-DOOOOONGY FACE!" Go forth, and make your favorite child laugh out loud.

My 6-year-old loves this, but...

My son heard this at school and asked me to get it for him. And while he spent the entire length of the book cracking up, I'm honestly disappointed that the entire book takes less than 8 minutes to read. Feels way too expensive for those few minutes - especially when it's the same exact thing read twice.
