It's a book is about a monkey that is sitting in a chair reading a book. Jackass comes along and asks him a ton of questions, like, an you blog? Can you Tweet ? and so forth. Monkey is a little irritated and wants to be left alone so he can read his book. Jackass finally takes the book and starts reading it and refuses to give it back to Monkey. Monkey decides to go back to the library and get another one ( )

This is a very funny book. It opens up the eyes of readers to see how people these days have turned away from book and become so attached to technology. The design is very modern and creative.

Not quite the same as the video - if you liked that, read this, too. I think I appreciated the irony of the video more, though.... ( )

Loved it! This was so hilarious, and the last line: priceless! ( )

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.
