The Boring Book

The Boring Book


The Boring Book is a humorous picture book that follows the story of one particularly bored boy.


As the story progresses, our protagonist discovers there's actually more to boredom than what meets the eye-more questions, more theories, and heaps of humour.


This exploration of boredom from acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake playfully-and hilariously-unpacks the ways in which a seemingly stagnant state is actually a portal into a dynamic, life-enriching experience.


In addition to banishing boredom, distinctive illustrations promote visual literacy and show young readers what the process of creative thinking looks like.


This smart, laugh-out-loud picture book just might change your child's perspective on the state of boredom forever.
