Picture books have very much monopolised the market of books for little people. American author, comedian and screen writer B. J. Novak (of The American Office fame) is releasing a book for small children that breaks the convention of traditional children’s books with “The book with no pictures.”
The book with no pictures is just as it’s title suggests, a book with no pictures. This is potentially a hard sell to young children and early readers but the book is more than just words on a page.
The Biff, Chip and Kipper books are nearly as old as I am (thanks for that Wikipedia) and I turned 31 yesterday!
The books are a series of stories designed to teach children how to read and speak English in line with the National Curriculum that is taught in schools. Because of this they have been incredibly popular with parents and schools for nearly 30 years!
