NEW YORK (AP) - B.J. Novak has his own ideas about how to tell a children’s story.

The actor and author known for his work on “The Office” has a deal with Penguin Young Readers Group for “The Book With No Pictures,” billed as a “picture book” with words only. As Novak explained in a statement issued Tuesday by the publisher: Words are just as much fun as pictures. Plus, he can’t draw.

“The Book With No Pictures” is scheduled for the fall. Next month, Alfred A. Knopf will publish Novak’s debut fiction collection, “One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories.” He is also under contract with Penguin for a second “picture” book, which may or may not have pictures.

The 34-year-old Novak appears as songwriter Robert Sherman in the film “Saving Mr. Banks.”
