The wrong book is a really weird and creative book that it has elephants and other creatures coming out of no where and the main character never gets to explain what the book is about until the very end where a giant brick saying"the end" nealy drops on top of him and all he says is "ME".
I sort of liked the book as it was nearly enjoyable and bit "how ya goin"

              The wrong book is weird but I think it would be good for young kids probably under the age of 8. It's not something i would recommend to a friend. The ending is really bad because all it says is me.

                Nick Bland

                Nick Bland was born on a farm in the Australian Yarra Valley in 1973. The son of an artist and a primary school teacher, he spent his early childhood climbing haystacks and making mischief in his father's studio. When he moved to “the bush” at age 6, he discovered a wonderful new world and his creativity bloomed. Nick always told family and friends he was going to be a cartoonist and a writer. It wasn't until 1996, when he stumbled into a bookshop job, that he finally found the medium that would bring those two loves together. Untrained, he spent the next couple of years reading every picture book that hit the shelves and began honing his style as a storyteller and illustrator. He illustrated several readers before sending A Monster Wrote Me a Letter to Scholastic Australia in 2001. Since then, Nick illustrated I Lost My Kisses and created The Very Cranky Bear. He lives in tropical Darwin, where he works as a guardian for 120 aboriginal boys who board nearby. He loves both of his jobs and hopes to combine them in the near future.
