Review: The Very Hard Book

Are you up for a challenge?

Do you love to laugh?

The Very Hard Book is the picture book for you.

Sit in an empty room.

Be somewhere else for a minute.

Stop thinking about purple turtles.

With impossible challenges to get you thinking and give you the giggles, The Very Hard Book is joyful, quirky and bucket loads of fun.

This is a book for inquisitive and curious minds. It’s a great one for classrooms and groups, with minimal text (in the form of instructions) to read and then assess — can it be done? Why can’t it be done?

Throughout the book a bunch of colourful, quirky creatures are there to accompany readers, giving each task a go to hilarious effect.

Bright, bold and joyful, Idan Ben-Barak and Philip Bunting deliver the goods in The Very Hard Book.
