What’s your favorite part of a book? One striving reader answers honestly: The blank space!
A surly (and silly) book dreams of getting on the Banned Books list. All it needs is a librarian's attention... and a little help from its readers. Kids and librarians alike howl at this hilarious, colorful, interactive story time adventure.
A lonely book makes a deal with its reader..."You keep turning my pages, and I'll make it fun!" Full of jokes, puzzles, and games for striving readers.
Did you know 65% of 4th graders in the US read below grade level? Learning to read can be frustrating. But it can also be fun. I Hate Reading validates the experience of reluctant readers and rewards them with laughter.

“Good tips for when you just don't feel like reading.”
—Mason, age 9
“I love reading and I love your book.”
—Andrew, grade 2
“Your book will work for my parents.”
—Christopher, grade 3
“I teach 3rd grade and I have a little boy who started the year hating to read. I found your book. This morning it was waiting for him. He loved it and even read it to the class."
"So, I ordered this for my Kindle and just read it. I laughed and thought, yeah, this is certainly some of my kiddos in my classroom. If you have ever experienced a child who is only pretending to read, then you should really read this book.”
“As someone who has worked extensively in classrooms, I have come to learn that some kids learn better through humor. This book truly emphasizes that. A delightful read that will have even anti-readers laughing from beginning to end.”
— I. H. S., Teacher
