Brandon Sanderson Will Soon Add “Picture Book Author” to His Resume

It is very well known that Brandon Sanderson is a prolific writer—and one who’s written for a huge audience, from middle grade readers to adults. But now he’s facing a new audience: children.

Publishers Weekly just announced that Sanderson has a picture book coming out from Roaring Brook Press. Titled The Most Boring Book Ever, the story has art by Kazu Kibuishi, the illustrator of the beloved and bestselling Amulet graphic novel series.

Here’s the brief description:

In this humorous epic adventure, a boy is, on the one hand, having a very ordinary day. He does his math homework, his chores, and takes a nap…all while a surprising adventure unfolds around him involving pirates, dragons, and other unexpected perils.

With clever interplay between text and art and an expansive, imaginative arc, this modern classic is a landmark fantasy picture book perfect for fans of Hugo Cabret and After the Fall.

This is just one of several Sanderson books coming out this year. In early March, the Tor Books edition of Cosmere novel The Sunlit Man (the last of his Kickstarted volumes) arrives on shelves. And Wind and Truth, book five of the Stormlight Archive, is due to publish in December. As for Kibuishi, he’s currently on tour for the just-released Amulet 9: Waverider.

The Most Boring Book Ever will be published on September 24th.
