From the maverick creative mind behind Wreck this Journal, Keri
Smith's "This is Not A Book" is curious, engaging, and creative
rethinking of what a book can be. This object does not exist
without you. You will determine the content and the final product.
All will be shaped by your imagination. You must go out into the
world in order to bring it to life and complete the assignments.
With intriguing prompts, you will discover that this book can be: A
secret message: tear out a page, write a note on it for a stranger,
and leave it in a public place. A recording device: have everyone
you contact today write their name in the book. An instrument:
create as many sounds as you can using the book, like flipping the
pages fast or slapping the cover. "This Is Not a Book" will engage
readers by having them define everything a book can be by asking,
'If it's not a book, what is it then?' - with a kaleidoscope of
possible answers. Bestselling author Keri Smith is a freelance
illustrator by trade, and has illustrated for the "Washington
Post", "The New York Times", Ford Motor Company, "People", The Body
Shop and Hallmark. She is the author of "Wreck This Journal", "How
