Innovative, clever, and completely original, The Book With No Pictures brings nearly wordless picture books to a new level. A book with no pictures? What could be fun about that? After all, if a book has no pictures, there's nothing to look at but the words on the page. But this is not your ordinary book with words on it. In fact…there are no words at all, except for one: "What?" And you can say that out loud if you like -- because with no text to read and nothing written on any of its pages, this book offers unlimited opportunities for grown-ups to make up their own silly voices and act out both sides of every story.
