I think this is part of a series, only in that Bacon has another book about reading.

My Take

This was such fun. And crazy. And as of today [5 Jan 2018], the colorful Kindle version is FREE!

It took a couple pages in before I cracked up. I’d never considered a book’s perspective before — it’s using a first person point-of-view. And I know I’d be bored to tears as well, lol. Parents, you can use that angle on your kids *more laughter* to get them to read more. Those poor…lonely…books…*grin*

Amazingly enough, there is a kind of storyline as the book makes friends with your child, for it does have a beginning, a middle, and an end with simple graphics that are large and colorful.

There are a few “interactive” pages that don’t work on a Kindle, but hey, compared to $24.95 for a hard copy, I can live with that.

The Story

It’s something of a dare, for this book is so bored and only wants a friend to play with.

The Characters

The book.

The Cover and Title

The cover is a greyed-down colonial blue with a coral stop sign shape in the middle with the title centered in its middle in white. The author’s name is at the very bottom in black with the illustrators’ names below that in white.

The title is an illustration of how unhappy this book is, The Book No One Wants to Read. Poor thing.
