Description

This is the story of how the ultimate reluctant reader became a book lover. The little boy in I Will Not Read This Book has alot of excuses, because if there is one thing he doesn’t want to do, it’s read this book. He won’t read it even if you hang him upside down by one toe, over a cliff, with sharks down below. And you know what? You. Can’t. Make. Him. In this book illustrated with wit and whimsy by Joy Ang, Cece Meng delivers once again with a pitch-perfect reluctant reader who is finally convinced to read the book if—and only if—someone he loves willread it with him.

Editorial Reviews

"Oh, yes, you will read this book. You’ll be reeled in by the feisty, angular, frequently exciting digital illustrations, not to mention that confrontational title."—Booklist "Suggest[s] that sharing a book with a parent can be reassuring, and [the] cheerful use of imagination makes for an enjoyable read." —School Library Journal
