Raj Haldar and Chris Carpenter are back with another dose of hilarious hi-jinks (or is it high jinks?). Following up their bestselling P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever, No Reading Allowed gloriously lays out variations of classic English phrases and spellings. It's punny, preposterous and…perfect! Great for budding readers and adults navigating the alphabetic absurdity that is the English language.
"Those who love wordplay are the natural constituency for No Reading Allowed: The Worst Read-Aloud Book Ever, a picture book that's bright with comic scenes... [and] brilliant pairings of picture and word (and word with word)."The Wall Street Journal
The hero had super vision.
The hero had supervision.
Man, a tea sounds great.
Manatee sounds great!
Sir Francis Bacon
Sir, France is bakin'!
What is going on here?!
You can't believe everything you hear! A single word can have many different meanings. And sometimes two words that sound alike can be spelled completely differently. Ptolemy the pterodactyl is back to show us all how absurd and fun language can be when homophones, homonyms, and tricky punctuation are at play!
No Reading Allowed allows children and their parents to laugh together while also learning something new. Perfect for baby gifts, birthday gifts, teacher gifts, and anyone who finds humor in the absurdity of the English language.
