What's The Boring Book About

Publisher Summary

Boredom: humankind’s age-old adversary. It’s a state that is undesirable, uninteresting . . . and just plain boring. But as one particularly bored boy discovers, there’s actually more to boredom than meets the eye—more questions, more theories, and heaps of humor. 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. For anyone who’s ever been mind-numbingly bored, this smart, laugh-out-loud picture book just might change your perspective on the state of boredom forever.
