Win 1 of 4 copies of The Book With No Pictures by US comedian & actor B.J. Novak

If you have read my article about Children’s picture books released this Spring, you have probably seen how I was enthusiastic about B.J. Novak ‘s The Book With No Pictures. In fact it is not a picture book, but an ANTI PICTURE BOOK which is utterly funny (particularly for children) and deserves more than a mention. The most talked about (non) picture book in recent years, The Book With No Pictures turns the notion of the picture book on its head, by delivering a text-only story book for young children. Designed to make any reader into an extraordinary storyteller, it is packed with warm and playful humour.

Don’t be fooled by the serious cover. This book is utterly funny!

The author is award-winning US actor and comedian B.J. Novak who shot straight to number one across all book categories on after claiming the top spot on the New York Times bestseller list within a week of publication of this book. I am not surprised by its success. Parents want to laugh and see their kids enjoy the storytelling. B.J. Novak was struck with the idea for the book when a friend’s son thrust a picture book into his hands and ordered him to read it.

“There is something special and distinct about the time when a book is something that is read to you,” says B.J. “The whole idea of a book is still new and exciting, and the experience is about the bond between the adult and child just as much as it is between the child and the book. I thought it would be fun to find a twist on that experience: what if the book and the child ‘teamed up’ to force the adult to say silly things? It could be a whole new way to introduce children to the idea of what a book can do.”  

B.J. Novak’s YouTube video of him reading the book to children has had over 2 million views:
