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 a lot 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 will read it with him.
Cece Meng is a school volunteer, Girl Scout leader, and gymnastics mom. She lives with her husband and their two children, a bird named Lulu, and three spotted rabbits in Santa Cruz, California.
Joy Ang is an illustrator who has worked in both the comic and gaming industries. She lives in Edmonton, and is one of the editors/creators of a comic anthology called The Anthology Project.
"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
