A picture book with no pictures

Meta-silliness is a trend in picture books these days. This book illustrates why. The adult reader acknowledges that a book with no pictures might seem boring, but uh oh! the reader has to read every single word printed in the book! That's where the silliness comes in. Kids will find the idea of the reader being forced to say preposterous things hilarious.
A few other titles where the book itself is an essential part of the plot: We Are In a Book by Mo Willems, This Book Just Ate My Dog! by Richard Byrne and The End (Almost) by Jim Benton.
