Win ‘The book with no pictures’ (ended)

Does your child love books? Here’s a rather unusual children’s book – it has no pictures. But you know what – it’s really good, and funny. Because the thing with kids books is – the grown up HAS to read what it says on the page. Even if it’s really ridiculous!

The Book with no Pictures is released on 4th December and it’s perfect for young children who are starting to read. We received a digital edition which Ryland and I enjoyed on the iPad. Being in reception year, Ryland is really interested in recognising letters so he certainly wasn’t disappointed by the lack of pictures!

The Book with no pictures

To get an idea of what the book is all about, watch this video of the author B.J.Novak (who stars in the US version of the Office) reading the book to schoolchildren:
