No Boring Stories
A group of odd animals is annoyed when a bunny tries to infiltrate their writing group. What could she possibly offer to their group? Surely she only wants to write about sharing and mommies and cuddling! A story about finding your people and following your heart, even if your heart is telling you to write about evil attacking grapes from outer space.

No Boring Stories Review

    Probably one of the best meta picture books I've read on writing and creating stories yet. Hilarious with strong narrative intent from start to finish. Highly recommended.

    This bunny is tired of cuddly-sweet stories. She wants fierce action & battling grape monsters! However, the animals in No Boring Stories don't want to let a snuggly bunny in their misfit group... How will she convince them that she is in the same boat (or robot crab?) Bright, fun illustrations with characters to match, a charming book on how we shouldn't base what someone enjoys on how they look or who they are.

    Thank you to Penguin for a free physical copy in exchange for my honest review.No boring stories is a cute story that follows one bunny who just wants to have some input from some other storytellers.

That is until finally he is able to give them an idea that helps their story and they are willing to listen to the bunny. This is a great story that brings to mind how we all need a little help from others at times. Rather than help is in the form of coming up with an ending to a story, or something far bigger. We all need to listen to each other's ideas and to not judge people by how they look on the outside. I can't wait to read this book to my niece now and to see her reaction to No Boring Stories.

    Such a hilarious read for both the parent and the kid. I've read it to my son a bunch of times and he will sit quietly in his room to flip through it even more. To top it off, he will randomly quote lines while driving his cars across the living room floor. Adorable win.

    Will give to my grade 2-3 teachers to see what they think.

    Anyone who's been part of a writing group (or even other types of groups) will relate to this clever, meta-fictional story told entirely through animal dialogue. My favorite line was "holy crabs!"

    Really fun to read and funny with a great message as well about stereotypes and assumptions.
