About this book 
Have you ever opened a book, only to discover that the characters inside already know they're inside of one? All that's left for them to do now is wait for the story to arrive, but it's certainly taking its time in getting here. This cleverly self-aware, interactive picture book, loosely based on Waiting For Godot, introduces a charming cast of characters illustrated in Marianna Coppo's quirky and delicate style. Young readers will learn that instead of waiting around for stories to happen, they should go out into the world and create their own! Perfect for fans of The Monster at the End of this Book and The Book with No Pictures.

Reviews from all over the world

“. . . a head-spinning yet easygoing lesson in finding your own voice, and your own fun.”–The New York Times

"[Coppo’s] subtle ability to control readers’ attention is polished. Life involves a lot of waiting, as Samuel Beckett knew—but why wait for someone else to deliver your story, Coppo asks, when you can write it yourself?" —Publishers Weekly

“A playful, self-aware picture book that has a lot of read-aloud potential.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
