An Incredibly Boring Story..... about Delia's Dull Day

Delia's Dull Day - an incredibly boring story
by Andy Myer
32 pages; ages 4 - 6 years
Sleeping Bear Press, 2012

Nothing exciting ever happens to Delia. Take yesterday morning - nothing happened during breakfast except she spilled some milk. And on her way to the bus stop she passed by the same old houses that have always been there.

Poor Delia. If only she would stop texting and look up! Maybe she would see the  balloons drifting overhead, or the pirate at the back of the school bus or the.... I don't want to spoil it for you, but there is a dinosaur in there somewhere. And perhaps an alien.

I love Andy Myer's wacky storytelling and color-filled illustrations. This book might make you turn off facebook for a day and look over your shoulder before backing out of the driveway. What fun!

Review copy provided by library.


  1. Love that cover! With the introduction of electronics to young children, they are missing out on what goes on around them -- the same for adults. Sounds like a cute book with an important message.

  2. This sounds like something to make folks wake up and take notice! How excellent!

  3. I have never heard of this one, but it sounds great. I love the theme and the reminder to unplug and engage in life around us. :) Thanks for sharing!
