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…
It’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!
