The Blurb –
Most bad books look forward to hanging out at rummage sales. Not this bad book. Its goal is to be featured in the library’s Banned Books List. Problem is, no one seems to notice… until the book teams up with its boisterous readers. Together, the book and its readers shout, wiggle, and sing to get the attention of a local librarian. Will this book see its cover on the library wall… or will it end up in the recycling bin? Full of bold, colourful graphics and laugh-out-loud humour, The Worst Book Ever is another colourful, graphical, high-lo book for reluctant readers by Beth Bacon. The meta-storytelling and interactive prompts get reluctant readers laughing, dancing, shouting—and reading. Ideal for read-alouds and story time, as well as independent reading for beginning to intermediate readers. Like Beth Bacon’s other books, I Hate Reading, The Book No One Wants To Read, and Blank Space, this book helps make reading fun.

My thoughts – This is a great children’s book. The author has created a fabulous way to get children to interact with the book. The book wants to be noticed, it has a plan. It wants to be banned from libraries and it’s picture to be hanging on library walls.
However the librarians don’t notice it so it plans to get the children that read it to help! The illustrations are bright and it encourages inter activity with the child, very clever.
