2016 Staff Favorite

A book about the making of a book called How This Book Was Made -- a hilarious meta-construct, taking the reader on a soup-to-nuts journey through the writing of the very book they’re reading, from the initial idea to the final crucial ingredient, the reader -- you!

You may think you know how this book was made, but you don't. Sure, the author wrote many drafts, and the illustrator took a long time creating the art, but then what? How'd it get into your hands? Well, open the cover and read through these pages to find out. Just beware of the pirates and angry tiger.

New York Times best-selling creators Mac Barnett and Adam Rex reveal the nitty gritty process of making a book . . . with a few unexpected twists along the way! Budding writers and artists will laugh at the mix of reality and the absurd as the story makes its way to a shelf, and a reader.
