Read Up! A book with no pictures, and a story with no words

I like these two as a set: one with no pictures, the other with no words!

The Book with No Pictures
B.J. Novak
At a family storytime, when I announced that the book had no pictures, kids whined.  Once I'd finished reading it, those same children begged for me to read it again.  And that is all I have to say about that.

The Boy & the Book (A Wordless Story)
David Michael Slater & Bob Kolar
A boy walks into the library unsupervised (his mother was there; she just wasn't supervising him), and he gets down to business, terrorizing the books.  This is a book to talk about together (since there are no words to read), perhaps gasping and shaking heads together, commiserating over the way these poor books get treated.
