    Hey, look! It's any girl EVER trying to join ANY group of people....pretty much ever. This book reminds me so much of the "gatekeepers" who try so hard to keep fluff out of THEIR spaces that they end up pushing away some quality folks who have a lot to contribute. Fortunately, the Int...

    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. ...

    Loved this hilarious story about a group of animals that are a part of a writing support group. One day a cute fluffy little bunny shows up and the other animals don't think the bunny is edgy enough for them. A terrific look at the writing process and how others can help your story alo...

    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. ...

    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 adorab...

    So cute! Bunny justs want to share her love of writing with the animal writing group. So much fun. I'm going to show it to my teen writing group at the library. ...

    Love the messages and themes in this story. The illustrations were cute and eye catching. It made the characters expressions much more relative and fun. It may be a little too long for your average story time, but it's still a fantastic read. ...

    Four animals (mole, babirusa, weevil, crab) meet to come up with book ideas. They want wild and exciting stories. A bunny shows up at their meeting, but they don't want to hear the bunny's boring stories. Only, the bunny doesn't have boring stories. Silly story with nice artwork, but a...

    There's a writing group which does NOT want Bunny to join them because bunnies are in too many stories already and they are writing a story about themselves. But Bunny needs their help, because they have fun interesting ideas, not boring like all the bunny books. Eventually they let hi...

    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 hidin...

    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 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 ...

    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...

    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 g...

    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 ...

    Kind of weird, occasionally amusing, but too long. This book is partly about the wrongness of making assumptions about others (or outright excluding them) based on outward characteristics (not all members of a people group think or act the same, duh!) and partly about the importance of...

    For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle Such an odd premise for a book that turns into a lovely and adorable story. Sick of boring stories about bunnies being cute and cuddly, a group of strange animals band together to write their own exciting stories. When a bunny wan...

    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. ...

    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 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 ...

    The concept of this story is fun and really breaks the stereotype around bunnies and bunnies only being in boring stories. The illustrations are soft and textured. The book is long and there are several illustrations on each page. ...
