You might think a book with no pictures would be boring and serious.
Except . . . here's how this book works: Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say BLORK . Or BLUURF . And even if they have to say things like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and MY HEAD IS MADE OF BLUEBERRY PIZZA! That's the rule. That's the deal. US comic writer and actor, B. J. Novak's brilliantly irreverent and very, very silly The Book With No Pictures will delight kids and grownups alike!

My 5yr old asked me to buy this book for her, as her teacher had read it at school and she had really enjoyed it. She told me I had to read the book. We liked bold black text,which is against a white background. There would be odd words which would be in a bright colour. This was simple but effective. It is a silly, fun book and it made my daughter laugh with the silly words and funny sentences. The bit my daughter enjoyed the most, was the page with lots of silly sounds on. It was fun reading it as an adult

My children think this is he most hilarious book ever, as do their friends. It really shows that pictures aren’t always needed. A great, interactive story which makes sure the grown ups look silly!!

A really fun book, a book that you will read over and over and each time you get more involved! As it says there are no pictures- just words- silly words! A good ice breaker book, or a book just to make everyone have a giggle.

This book is fantastic, the children loved it. This book is a book with no pictures so it can be used to encourage older children to read books without pictures as they can still be fun and interesting to read. The children loved this book as it made the reader (me) say lots of silly things like blonk. This book has two voices in it, there is the reader e.g. "do I have to continue reading?" and the book character "my head is made of blueberry pizza". Although the book has no pictures the text is colourful and in different fonts.

This book is definitely a class favourite! Read it everyday for at least 2 weeks at the request of the children! It allows for so much fun and engagement when reading the story and got the children’s imaginations really going! Every teacher needs this book!

We absolutely love this book! It's quite a cheeky one, because it makes the reader (supposed to be the grown up) say pretty silly things; but it has my 5 year old daughter in hysterics every time. Give it a try!

My 7 year old absolutely loves this book. She thinks it’s great because it makes me say silly words!. She has got it out and read it on her own and still really enjoys  it. Me on the other hand thought it was a bit strange as there is no real storyline to it. Not my all time favorite for a bedtime read, but I can see why kids would enjoy it.

3 stars
My 9 and 7 year old like this one as there are various sily things that the reader has to say. However, it doesn't really have any kind of story line and I must admit that I find it pretty boring to read. Also, although it is lovely to see the kids finding it funny, it is not good as a bedtime story for us as it really hypes the kids up.
