IDon'tWanttoReadThisBook ThisBookIsNotAPresent
I Don't Want to Read This Book This Book Is Not a Present
Read all the books by Max Greenfield! From actor Max Greenfield (from television’s New Girl) comes a hilarious picture book for every child who thinks they don't like to read books (and all the kids—and grownups—who do). A hilarious picture book companion to I Don't Want to Read This Book by actor Max Greenfield.

Product description


Praise for I Don't Want to Read This Book:

“I Don't Want to Read This Book . . . is in the same family as books like The Book With No Pictures and The Serious Goose. A funny read-aloud, it breaks the fourth wall and engages young readers who are normally reluctant to pick up a book.” —

“This satirical picture book . . . hilariously lists all the things he’d rather be doing than actually reading this book.” —

“Hilarious and thoughtful.” —
Parents Magazine

“Invites reluctant readers on a wry, irreverent adventure, with exuberant drawings and graphics, and lots of winks to kids who will wink back.” —

“Greenfield's irreverent text demolishes the fourth wall, and Lowery's peppy pencil and digital-media renderings of his words have a vibe reminiscent of a child's journal, with doodle-style drawings accenting his dynamic renditions of Greenfield's words. For avid and reluctant readers alike, this tongue-in-cheek, metafictive send-up of reading as a chore is delightfully unlikely to live up to its title.” —
Shelf Awareness
“Genuinely funny . . . A feisty manifesto and appealing visual experience.” —
Kirkus Reviews

“Silly, funny, and visually appealing, this work will appeal to reluctant and avid readers . . . A great classroom read-aloud bound to make listeners join in the fun.”
School Library Journal

“Colorfully eye-catching and visually compelling.” —
Publishers Weekly

“Perfect for reluctant and avid readers alike,
I Don’t Want to Read This Book will have kids cracking up on every page.” —Books to Borrow . . . Books to Buy
