The Book With No Pictures

If you are a fan of witty, humorous and clever books, please take note of this one! I'll file it under "awesome" in my list of children's books and so will my 5 year old daughter, Molly. It belongs in the ranks with The Day The Crayons Quit or Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus; it's that good!  Clever and appeals to both adult and child humor, The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak is a New York Times Best Seller for a reason. 

In The Book With No Pictures, there are no pictures. That should be fairly obvious but just in case you needed clarification, there really are no pictures.  This might seem strange for a children's book.  But the rules are simple: the person reading the book has to say exactly what the words say.  And boy, are the words, sentences, and songs funny! Molly had a strange and curious look on her face when I began it and then went to full giggle and belly laugh within pages. (She was practically on the floor when I read the word: BUTT. Why is "butt" funny to a 5 year old? It's good clean fun though!) 

Author B.J. Novak is a writer but is best known for his work on "The Office" as actor, writer, director and executive producer. He's also known for stand up comedy performances and other film work. A graduate of Harvard University, B.J. Novak is clearly a talented man!  Bravo, B.J.! We love this one.
