RICHARD AYOADE | The Book that no one Wanted to Read
"Very funny, with brilliant illustrations. It should be called The Book That Everyone Wanted To Read." Nadia Shireen
"One book that I really think children should read is The Book That No One Wanted to Read." David Baddiel
What is it that makes YOU want to read a book? Richard Ayoade’s children’s debut gives you all the answers in a way that’s silly, funny, and thoroughly beguiling.
Have you ever thought about how it feels to be a book? To be left under a whiffy pant pile or shelved, forever collecting dust? To have your pages bent backwards or your spine BROKEN? What if you don’t have a sparkly unicorn or dragon adorning your cover – who will pick you out of the bookshop then? This is the story of the sadly neglected Book That No One Wanted To Read – can its destiny change when it finally meets the right reader? Spoiler alert: yes.
