I bought this a a christmas present for my 12 year old sister and she loves it. She hasn't stopped playing with it since and she's not a big fan of books. I highly recomend it. She says it's so fun.

Really good book. Hours of entertainment with my little one.
Felt ripped off with p+p from 'world of books' as charged twice for 2 books I bought at same time which arrived in same packet and e-mail communication not satisfactory at all but cant fault the book itself :)

I've only completed a few pages of this book so far, however I look forward to spending more time on it. This book is great for using you mind and imagination. Each page has a different task and it is up to you how you complete it. Perfect for anyone who is in need of something to do.

Check out Keri Smith's website and the Flickr groups for more info, and for examples of what is in the book.

I also have 'Wreck This Journal' by the same author and it is similarly awesome.

I bought this book after some of the girls in my class brought in their Wreck this Journals. Only one of them had a This is not a book and to be honest I liked the look of it more. It's longer, after all, so lasts longer, and you can buy it cheaper. I'm a perfectionist and hate seeing things ruined, so found this book a good way of letting go, but not to the point where I'd be snapping spines, jumping on it and throwing it up trees. The book is a great waster of time and I love it. If you're looking to buy one now, go ahead!

I saw this book in an art gallery shop but bought it from Amazon as it was considerably cheaper. It's just a barrel of fun. Think of something silly to do, and this book give you permission (should you need it) to do it. I recommend this book to all those who are tempted to take themselves and/or their work too seriously. :-)
