Follow the story of one particularly bored boy.
As the story progresses, our protagonist discovers there's actually more to boredom than what meets the eye—more questions, more theories, and heaps of humour.
This exploration of boredom from acclaimed author-illustrator Shinsuke Yoshitake playfully—and hilariously—unpacks the ways in which a seemingly stagnant state is actually a portal into a dynamic, life-enriching experience.
The Boring Book embraces the topic of boredom—an ever-so-popular kid complaint—with a unique comic format that balances a fast pace with whip-smart humour that's great for reluctant readers to explore what the process of creative thinking looks like.
Read if you: got bored reading this.
