Boken som verkligen inte ville bli läst The Book That Really Did Not Want To Be Read

The Book That Really Did Not Want To Be Read promises to give its readers EVEN MORE trouble than its predecessor – watch out or you’re bound to get bitten! Filled with even more delightful and laugh-inducing read-out-loud hilarity, the book is an ode to the power of words and the togetherness of reading. This book will force its readers to monkey around, decipher a thing or two, and even say some nice things. It’s going to get sweaty, but it will be worth it!

Reviews

  • A challenging children’s book that makes the adult a better reader. /…/ Another book that does not want to be read – does that really work? It most definitely does, us adults need more challenging read-out-loud books of this caliber. /…/ One of last year’s best children books, according to myself and many others, was David Sundin’s The Book That Did Not Want To Be Read. Here, finally, is another book that does not want to be read. The concept is familiar, yet this little red book gets up to completely different antics. It starts with the end, it bites, it gets stuck askew and it begins to shake. Hysterically funny for the child, of course. And so incredibly beneficial for the adult. Because this is a book that demands utter presence from its reader. You cannot rush it, skip ahead or let your mind wander off. Something that guarantees that you will be left a better and more imaginative reader of other children’s books. So give us more uproarious books like this one, please.

  • We can all agree that the idea to create another book that does not want to be read was a great one.

  • “Believe it or not. The Book That Really Did Not Want To Be Read is even funnier than its predecessor The Book That Did Not Want To Be Read. It needs to be spun around even more, be read out loud in even crazier ways and requires an even trickier picture puzzle to be cracked in order to reach its final page. A book that, simply, really needs to be read.”
