The Boring Book is a humorous picture book that follows the story of one particularly bored boy. As the story progresses, our protagonist discovers there's actually more to boredom than what meets the eye--more questions, more theories, and heaps of humor!
This exploration of boredom from acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake playfully--and hilariously--unpacks the ways in which a boredom can be a portal into a dynamic, life-enriching experience. The unique comic format, fast pace, smart humor, and narrative approach makes it ideal for reluctant (and bored!) readers.
Ideal for all ages, but especially 5 to 8. A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year.
40 pages. Hardcover.
