A book with no pictures

a  book with no pictures

This innovative and wildly funny read-aloud by award-winning humorist/actor B.J. Novak turns any reader into a comedian.

    We found the book more funny and interesting than we had expected. At first we thought it was going to be serious and less kiddish than it actually is. We liked it because you made a fool of yourself.

    Firstly when I saw that book I thought it would going to be boring. But when Miss Scarrott was reading the book I had a shocked on my face. I wasn’t expecting to be so funny.

  5. Dear Miss Scarrott,
    It was hilarious watching you making a fool of yourself by making weird noises and saying weird things! At first we thought that it was going to be a boring book until you read the blurb, then we thought it was going to be funny.

    We think that the book seems to be boring at first but when Miss Scarrott reads it to us it was hilarious. Miss Scarrott was having trouble reading all the words that was on the page. The book was making her sound like a weirdo.

    I thought the book wasn’t that great at the start because it sounded like something a two year old would read, but it started to get funny so I volunteered to have a go at reading it and I was surprised because it was embarrassing for me to read to the class.

  9. I thought it was going to be funny but not as funny as it was, it made Miss Scarrott say funny thing’s that made her look silly.

  10. Dear Miss Scarrott,
    Our first thought was that it would be boring. Now we really like the book you read. It was fun and enjoyable to watch you making a fool of yourself. We would like someone else to read it again.
