    A group of friends are part of a writing group, and they plan on writing a story is that will NOT have the following: - Mommy cats tucking fluffy kittens into bed - Fuzzy ducklings waddling to the pond - Bear cubs giving birthday hugs - And definitely no BORING STORIES about adorable bunnies So you can imagine their reaction when a bunny wants to join their writing group.

    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.

    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.

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.

    I thought the story and illustrations were delightful; very funny. I loved that three of the animals were unusual and not in every other picture book--the mole, the yeti crab and the babirusa. The fact that they think the bunny is going to like boring stories was funny.

    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 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! Be sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for more reviews!

    A group of animals who... tend not to star in stories have come up with their own story club/writers' group. However, a bunny really wants to join in, as she doesn't tend to write the kind of stories she is expected to, so she persists until the other animals realize what she is isn't important.The truly humorous part, is that I read a stack of picture books at the same time as this one, and nearly every single one of them had elements that the "writers' group" sneers at in this story!

A fun story of imagination and not taking others at face value, as they may just have the perfect ending for your beginning. No content issues; however, the story the group is working on contains giant grapes attacking and in the end, they eat the grapes, which is kinda disturbing, but only if you think about it too much.

    A group of animals who don't normally get picked for stories meets for their regular writing group. They make only not boring stories, and get quite worried about a bunny who wants to join their group. Won't a normal story character make their story normal and boring? This shared great elements of story writing in addition to being a fun story itself.

This shared great elements of story writing in addition to being a fun story itself. I can honestly say I've never read another picture book featuring a yeti crab or a giraffe-necked weevil, so kids will get introduced to some obscure animals too. And of course, there's a great message about judging falsely based on appearances/stereotyping instead of by someone's personal character and abilities. Highly recommended for elementary English classes and anyone looking for engaging stories.

    "I like books where strange stuff happens. But everyone says my stories are too weird." NOT ONLY IS THIS BOOK FUNNY AND ADORABLE, BUT IT'S ALSO ABOUT EMBRACING THE WEIRDNESS OF YOUR OWN IMAGINATION AND FINDING OTHER PEOPLE WHO CAN APPRECIATE AND SUPPORT YOU AS YOU PURSUE THINGS YOU CARE ABOUT. FOR WRITERS AND ANYONE WHO'S EVER FELT DRAWN TO IDEAS THAT OTHERS AREN'T QUITE SURE WHAT TO DO WITH, THIS BOOK IS WONDERFULLY RELATABLE. I LOVE IT.

    A group of animals gathers to write a story together. The bunny tries to join but they reject him as bunnies are in so many cute stories. They stereotype him without listening. They discover he wants to write the same types of adventure stories they do after a lot of sneaking and hiding to join them. Use to talk about listening and seeing beyond the obvious.

    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.

    I didn't like this on my first read through, but something made me go back and reread it. Then I realized how multi-faceted the story is, not only for young readers but adults who also may be aspiring authors. Zany, bright illustrations on the front cover, but rather muted inside.

    This story helps teach children to not judge a book, or in this case a bunny, by its cover. There are a large amount of words on each page, so this book would be better read by parents and not during a Storytime session.

    This is a hilarious picture book for older children. It is too long for a storytime, but would be great for children 2nd grade and up.

    Cute idea and illustrations but WAYYY too much text on some pages and overall too long for storytime.

    I'm pretty sure I got more out of this as a writing enthusiast than the intended audience would..

    This book was great! I like that the cute little bunny wanted to break out of the cutesy box. Nice lesson.

    A picture book about a writing critique group!

    A neat story, but a little wordy for a picture book.

    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.

    Would be good for writer's workshop mentor text to talk about peer editing and sharing story ideas.

    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.

    Wonderful so funny and well written it really does show what working together can do.

    Very cute story! I love it when it seems as if the main character "talks" to the reader!

    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.
