Review: The Book no one Wants to Read

Who wants to read a book? Books are boring. They’re a waste of time. We only read because our parents and teachers make us, right?

Well, I agree with this 100% (wink, wink), but if you have to read a book. If you absolutely HAVE to pick up a book and read it, then I promise, this is the one you want!

The Book no one Wants to Read is crazy fun! 

It looks like it’s a chunky size, but that’s just to fool your parents into thinking you’ve read a chunky book. Inside, you won’t find more than 10 words per page, and each is loads of fun.
The brightly coloured pages engage and delight as the book comes to life and invites you to stay with it for a while and pretend to be reading, while, actually, you are goofing off. Genius!

Play a game of rock, paper, scissors, share some jokes, solve puzzles, and before you know it, you’ve finished the whole book!

With vibrant pages filled with funky images and giant text, this is the book for kids who love to laugh and just aren’t that interested in a serious read or long read, which is completely fine. Even kids who do love a chunky serious read will get so many kicks out of this one. It’s perfect for everyone.

For big laughs, loads of fun and sneaky secrets between you and your new book pal, grab a copy of The Book no one Wants to Read. And if you like this one, I dare say you will love I Hate Reading, also by Beth Bacon.
