The book with no pictures
By B. J. Novak

ISBN 978-0803741713

The book with no pictures has been our book of the week in the school library and what a huge success it has been. The sound of laughter ringing throughout the library is pure delight. All levels have laughed their way through this wonderful book. There is a catch however! You have to read the book with oomph! Put on a monkey voice or a robot voice and go with the flow. I ran out of breath each time I read the page with full on random words. I couldn’t help the urge to speed up and use strange and weird voices.
I believe this is a must have for all primary school libraries and teachers also. It is not just for the humour and simplicity but as a tool for encouraging children to create their own stories. Such a simple concept. Even without pictures I found myself holding the book out as if there were pictures and the children sat there watching and listening creating their own images in their heads.
