Now this is a silly book. But in the best kind of way. The Book With No Pictures by BJ Novak uses words to make children giggle, and puts the reader - usually a grown up - in a position where they have to make non-sensical sounds. Which is hilarious, of course, if you are three or six years of age.

The first time our six-year-old son saw the cover of this book he was intrigued. When he started to read it, he laughed and chuckled and then laughed louder. And I don't think it's ever been read just once in the one sitting. As soon as it's finished, he starts over again.

When we read it over the weekend our three-year-old heard the laughing and came into the room. Soon they were both giggling and then writhing with laughter. 

The book was written by BJ Novak, who is a writer, actor, director and executive producer of the US TV series The Office. He is also a stand-up comedian, which comes through in this book. It's full of energy and fun.
