This is the story of a jackass, a monkey, and a mouse. The jackass is asking the monkey what he is reading. He doesn't seem to understand the concept of a book, asking the monkey questions such as: "does it have a mouse?" and, "can you blog with it?" Eventually the jackass takes the books and loves it. He begins to understand.

Brilliant! Especially in light of today's over obsession with digital gadgets! I doubt a real conversation like this is not too far in our collective future! Great ending too! ( )

A fun book that explores what a book is! This would be a fun story to read to a younger audience. It explore the importance of reading through the eyes of monkey who doesn't know what a book is. ( )

Jag misstänker att ”Det är en bok!” är för statisk och händelselös för att tilltala barn. Den passar bättre som gåbortspresent från en bokälskande kulturtant till en annan.
”Det är en bok” beskrivs av förlaget som ”raka motsatsen till Ipad” och Lane Smith tycks mycket riktigt ha tröttnat på allt vad digitaliseringsprocesser heter.
Donkey's gradual capitulation to the power of a real book is marked by both the hands of the clock (in a droll double-page time-lapse sequence) and the angles of his ears. But it's a mouse's final insouciant line that garners the biggest laugh.
