Do Not Open This Book

Fiction, YA Picture Book
DESCRIPTION: Wait! Stop! Don't open this book - it hasn't even been written yet! A writer struggles to finish the story while a persistent reader insists on
turning the pages.
REVIEW: Another quick read during a slowdown at work, I found this one amusing. The would-be writer struggles to come up with an idea (with a number of
how-to-write books lying in the background) and put words in order, but every time the page turns something gets messed up. Eventually, the writer must learn to
cooperate with the stubborn reader, in the process discovering that, without readers, a story wouldn't exist. The pictures are simple and fun.
