This week, Emmylou returns with a review of B.J. Novak’s The Book With No Pictures, from Dial Books. She dictated her review to her parents, who also run this website…


book no picturesIt’s about silliness and making grown-ups have to say silly things like “Blonk!” They have to say them because they’re part of the book. It says “That the deal. That’s the rule,” so all of the things in the book grown-ups have to read out loud.

My mom and dad really think it’s silly, so I like to get them to read it to me.

My favorite part is the page where it has all of the silly words together, and even though it has no pictures it’s still so funny. B.J. Novak is a really good writer. My kindergarten teacher has The Book With No Pictures and my whole class likes it a lot.

I like this book because it’s very funny. I would give it 55 points. I think other kids should read it.


Do you know a kid who’d like to release their inner critic? Have your little scribe write about one of their favorite books, and they could get published by Kinderlit.ca!

  1. Emmylou, that was a very useful review. I learned a lot from it. It does seem to be a good book. It will teach grownups to stay silly and not to stop being silly just because they are grownups. If they stop being silly, they will start being old grownups, even older than their age, which is a very great shame. Thank you for your excellent review.

  2. oooh, and if a grownup asks you a question and you don’t know the answer, just look at them and say, “Needle Nidle Noo”. I’ve done that all my life ‘cos I’m a grownup who stayed silly. Hooray for being silly. Yay!!
