No Reading Allowed is a laugh-out-loud exploration of the absurd world of homonyms. Disparate illustrations are paired with bits of text that sound identical when read aloud, as with a portrait of Sir Francis Bacon by a sunny seaside scene with the caption “Sir, France is bakin’!” A glossary defines unfamiliar words, opening up further opportunities for learning, while fuzzy green monsters hidden in some of the illustrations are a fun scavenger hunt element for younger readers.
