This is Not a Book

Author(s): Keri Smith


From the internationally bestselling creator of Wreck This Journal, a curious, engaging, and creative rethinking of all the different things a book can be.


In this uniquely skewed look at the purpose and function of a "book," Keri Smith offers an illustrated guide that challenges readers to creatively examine all the different ways This Is Not a Book can be used. With intriguing prompts, readers will discover that the book can be:


A secret message--tear out a page, write a note on it for a stranger, and leave it in a public place.


A recording device--have everyone you contact today write their name in the book.


An instrument--create as many sounds as you can using the book, like flipping the pages fast or slapping the cover.


This Is Not a Book forces you to ask, "If it's not a book, what is it then?"--with a kaleidoscope of possible answers.
