The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One of the best ways to see if a new picture book works is to read it to a group of kids - this was a huge hit with the group I read it to (the adults were laughing as well). The gimmick is that there are no pictures, but the words are just as powerful and the reader must (MUST!) read exactly what's written. Clever, but not overly so.
