Waterstones Says

Packed full of Ayoade's trademark dry wit and surreal humour, The Book That No One Wanted to Read tells the side-splitting story of a neglected volume and the reader who just might be perfect for it.

Signed Edition - a standard edition is available here

What is it that makes YOU want to read a book? Richard Ayoade's children's debut gives you all the answers in a way that's silly, funny, and thoroughly beguiling.

Have you ever thought about how it feels to be a book? To be left under a whiffy pant pile or shelved, forever collecting dust? To have your pages bent backwards or your spine BROKEN? What if you don't have a sparkly unicorn or dragon adorning your cover - who will pick you out of the bookshop then? This is the story of the sadly neglected Book That No One Wanted To Read - can its destiny change when it finally meets the right reader? Spoiler alert: yes.
