Publisher's Summary

This innovative and wildly funny read-aloud 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.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)

My Kids Love to Listen to this

My Kids Love to Listen to this almost as much as they love to read it. I mean who doesn't love a hippo named boo boo butt. Plus since there aren't any pictures in the book in the first place it is a great book to have as an audiobook.

One of my favorite books, read by the author

I love that they offer both a male and female narration. This is one of my absolute favorite children’s stories. It is so much fun. It contains a lot of nonsense words, so I liked the chance to listen to the Audible version to see how Novak pronounces everything. He does a great narration job. It is a simple read-along performance.

My kid is in STICHES!

What made the experience of listening to The Book with No Pictures the most enjoyable?

It is just hysterical. and it was made to read aloud!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Book with No Pictures?

My child is laughing a lot~~~

Which character – as performed by B. J. Novak and Busy Phillips – was your favorite?

They are both great, its nice to have the different interpretations. just be aware.... you're going to have to listen to the book twice!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I haven't seen my child laugh that authentically in awhile. Thank you.

No pictures but full of fun!

I learned about this book from a neighbor and read it to my son. He absolutely loves it so I purchased the audio. Best buy in a while!
