Reviews

"Conceptually radical . . . making the refreshing and contrarian case that words alone have sensory and imaginative vibrancy to spare."--Mark Levine, The New York Times Book Review

* ""This book may not have pictures, but it's sure to inspire lots of conversations--and laughs . . . A riotously fresh take on breaking the fourth wall.""-- Kirkus, starred review

"This book is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and it's perfect for one-on-one sharing with a parent or caregiver. Expect requests for repeated readings."--School Library Journal

"Actor Novak's expert sense of comic timing is on full display in his first picture book . . . sure to deliver big laughs."-- Publishers Weekly

"Listeners will be tickled by hearing adults say ridiculous things . . . The comic pacing and foolproof theatrics ensure a wild and silly trip through the pages for everyone."-- The Horn Book

"This picture book with no pictures knows a thing or two about both books and kid-friendly comedy . . . Once children get the joke, they'll want to play it on as many of their grownups as possible."-- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Unlike any of the children's books you read growing up."-- Bustle.com

"Will have little ones laughing and finding a new appreciation for words."-- Entertainment Weekly

"A perfectly-pitched tool for parental humiliation and childish glee."-- The Boston Globe
