Don t take the title as a metaphor: it really is the worst book ever. The winner of the Governor General Literary Award and children s book author and illustrator Elise Gravel takes readers on an unexpected journey through the world s most boring book in The Worst Book Ever. The characters and omniscient readers alike quickly become annoyed by the author s bland imagination and rebel against her tired tropes and stale choices, spouting sass in an attempt to get her attention and steer the narrative in a more interesting direction. After all, you don t even have to buy the book, but the characters? They re stuck in there for an eternity, and they re going to do their best to make the most of it, or at least have a little fun when they can. As the charming and bizarre true nature of the characters overpowers the dry attributes given to them by the author, this once blase story quickly picks up speed, transforming into something much more unique than originally promised. With Gravel s signature goofy characters behind the wheel, no silly twist or rude body function is off the table.
