This innovative and wildly funny audiobook 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.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Ask any children's librarian what recent read-aloud most reliably causes kids to cry with laughter and they'll hand you this one. There may not be any pictures but there sure is a whole lot of silliness.

the book with no pictures a book acualy with no pictures can you amagine just staring at a book with no pictures. well your in luck this is no ordenary book that has no pictures (just to let you know it still has no pictures ) but it is a book to make children laugh. how does it make children laugh? if parents read it to there children the book makes the parents say silly things.

This book is an excellent read-aloud for early grade school children. Kids - check this book out - your grown up will have to say "Boo-Boo Butt!"

A book that reminds us all that reading is fun! A fun book to read together or a book that helps readers learn how to dramatize their readings!

I borrowed this book to read to my 3 year old niece. She loved it! She was laughing so hard. If you have little kids , I suggest this book.

This book was so much fun to read aloud in my preschool storytime sessions! Parents and children alike enjoyed the humor.

Great as a book and audio book. Busy Philipps does an amazing job reading this!

In all honesty the three star rating is because I'm an adult - tho with a child's heart- and I read the book to myself. Had I read the book, in all its silliness to child she/he would have roared with laughter and rated it five stars.

Yes, Novak has catered to children and the children in all of us by writing a nifty book with enough silliness to make it funny.
