    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. These other storytellers though don't want to let in him in their group and try to do everything they can to send him away. 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.

No boring stories is a cute story that follows one bunny who just wants to have some input from some other storytellers. These other storytellers though don't want to let in him in their group and try to do everything they can to send him away. 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.

    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.

    Hello, friends! Our book today is No Boring Stories!, written by Julie Falatko and illustrated by Charles Santoso, a hilarious yet poignant look at the creative process. Bunny has a head full of wonderful and strange story ideas, but her fellow “cute and cuddly” creators just don’t seem to get what she’s about. Seeing a sign for a meeting of the International Society for Writers Of Odd and Weird, Bunny is sure she has finally found a collaborative group – unfortunately, the offbeat animals (a bab Hello, friends! Our book today is No Boring Stories!, written by Julie Falatko and illustrated by Charles Santoso, a hilarious yet poignant look at the creative process. Bunny has a head full of wonderful and strange story ideas, but her fellow “cute and cuddly” creators just don’t seem to get what she’s about. Seeing a sign for a meeting of the International Society for Writers Of Odd and Weird, Bunny is sure she has finally found a collaborative group – unfortunately, the offbeat animals (a babirusa, a yeti crab, a star-nosed mole, and a giraffe-necked weevil), repeatedly turn her away due to her bunny-ness. She tries to blend into the scenery, listening to the group collab on a story about a fearless princess and her team of heroes, but gives herself away when she blurts our story ideas. The Society is unmoved – what could a bunny offer to the world of odd and weird? How can Bunny show them that all she wants is a chance to share her talents? Absolutely fantastic. A wildly entertaining blend of hilarious dialogue, action-packed illustrations, a crash-course in story structure, and an important lesson about snap judgements, that somehow never feels overwhelming. Indeed, many of the lessons are subtle, wrapped in the over-the-top text (crazy fun to read aloud, btw). Readers will learn terms like “rising action” and the concept of “relatable characters”, and (most importantly) the idea that one’s talent or aptitude for something is not predetermined by their appearance or background. The art is colorful, fun, and endearing, the length is great, and we both had a blast reading it. Emphatically Baby Bookworm approved!

    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.

    Ironically, this got a little boring while the characters were arguing. May be amusing for those who are tired of sappy picture books with bunnies and birthday parties and such. Ages 5-7.

    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!"

    This one would work for a middle school English classroom in which students are asked to diagram the parts of a story. The humor is too mature for the typical picture book audience.

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

    A chock full of story telling, creativity, humor and cooperation. A bit too much going on for my taste.

    This quirky and laugh-out-loud picture book is a wildly amusing and surprisingly sweet celebration of using your imagination, embracing your oddness, and unexpected friendships. Little readers will delight in the engaging, over-the-top storylines and the fun, lively illustrations.

    Will kids like this? Yes, I think kindergarten and older kids will go for it. Though I also wonder if the perfect audience will include those who are all too familiar with writing workshops... Thanks to Penguin Young Readers for the review copy.
