Adorable book promo features children laughing hysterically at 'book with no pictures'

The book aims to show how fun books can be even without pictures.

YOU MAY RECOGNISE BJ Novak from The Office. Novak played Ryan on the series and also wrote numerous episodes. He has also starred in films like Inglourious Basterds and Saving Mr. Banks.

Now he has written a book entitled The Book With No Pictures. It’s aimed squarely at young children and as its name would suggest, it has no pictures. Instead, it relies solely on the written word and aims to demonstrate that words can be fun and silly.

This promo video features Novak reading out excerpts from the book to a group of assembled children. As Novak announces things like, “My only friend in the whole wide world is a hippo named Boo Boo Butt,” they all collectively shriek with laughter.

In a word: adorable.
