A little more B.J. in our lives is great thing!
Also, a little more B.J. Novak is a great thing too! Ha!
B.J. — who wrote for and starred in The Office — just signed with Penguin Young Readers Group! The deal includes writing a book for kids called The Book with No Pictures.
The book, which is scheduled for release in 2014, is a picture book without pictures! Duh!
How that works we don't know yet — but the publisher said it:
“turns the notion of the [format] on its head.”
B.J. had his to add:
“I wanted to write a book that would introduce the youngest of kids to the idea that words can be their allies—that the right words can be as fun, exciting, and ridiculous as any pictures. Also, I can’t draw.”
It sounds like this is the perfect medium for his sense of humor! We can't wait to see it!!
