B.J. Novak to write The Alphabet Book With No Pictures
How do you follow up The Book With No Pictures?
Well, if you’re B.J. Novak, with The Alphabet Book With No Pictures.
The Office star’s follow-up to his first children’s book sees him ditching pictures once again, this time focusing on teaching young readers the alphabet. And much like his first book, it will be filled with words that will grow progressively sillier with each page as readers make their way through the alphabet. The book—which will be released fall 2017—will focus on teaching kids how letters form sounds, words, and sentences.
“I want to inspire more kids to see that words can be as funny, exciting, and powerful as anything in the world,” said Novak in a statement. “And to corner the market on books without pictures before kids realize I’m not the only person who writes them.”
The book will be published by Dial Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers. Novak’s first book, The Book With No Pictures was New York Times bestseller.
