Review: The Pointless Book 2The Pointless Book 2 by Alfie Deyes
Series: The Pointless Book #2
Published by Running Press on April 7, 2015
Genres: Activity Book
Pages: 192
Format: Paperback

THE POINTLESS BOOK 2 is packed with endlessly entertaining games, dares, jokes, activities, and pranks. Using Alfie’s signature quirky style, the book will encourage you to draw your dream house, make up stories, create pointless riddles, and play the classic game of Hang Man. As with The Pointless Book, the sequel includes an exclusive app that connects the reader to Alfie for behind-the-scenes coverage and other “pointless” activities.

I’ve never attempted to review an activity book before, but I figure that I should include plenty of pictures so you all can see what a horrible artist/instruction-taker I am!

Ripping and putting together a page is a lot harder then it first appears… especially when there isn’t much on the page!

Some of my awful illustration work… but there was a paint by numbers page too that I’m looking forward to completing!!

Pointless Book 2 spot difference

My cat decided to help me out with some of the more puzzly items in the book. (Note how I did NOT show my failed attempts at some of the mazes in the book)

There really is a lot going on in this activity book. It’s got some wreck that journal elements, some to-do list kind of things, recipes, things to do to make yourself happy, games to play with other people, and it’s got an interactive element with an app. (I didn’t personally mess around with the app stuff, but I’m sure it makes things that much more fun!)

    WHAT IS THIS? THIS LOOKS SO COOL! I’ve always wanted one of these journal/do it yourself books because they just seem like so much fun. ALSO CAT.
