The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak” on YouTube

This innovative and wildly funny read-aloud by award-winning humorist/actor B.J. Novak will turn any reader 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 . . .


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.)

Watching kids while this story is being read to them is one of the greatest experiences ever. One experience that tops that is actually reading this story to kids and being the cause of the laughter! This book is just so much fun! Who would have thought that a book with no pictures in it could be this entertaining?!?

Kids just love the idea that the grownups are being forced into saying these foolish things, and that there is no way out of it…because that is how books work.

I also think that this book without pictures shows kids that the chapter books that are on their way are not as boring or scary as they imagine 😉

I love this book, I love the idea of this book, and I love what this book does to people! Check out the video of the author B.J Novak reading his book to kids, and their infectious reaction!
