The Boy Who Read Too Much
March 14, 2013 7:51 AM   Subscribe

Childhood Books: When I was a kid, I had a short illustrated book about The Boy Who Read Too Much or The Boy Who Didn't Like Television or something. It was about a boy who only wanted to read, but his parents wanted him to watch TV. Tongue in cheek, obviously--I seem to remember it being illustrated in a sort of Roz Chast-y style. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I don't remember the title well enough to do a fruitful Google search.

This maybe? The Boy Who Did Not Like Television, by Rui Zink.

No, not that one, but thanks. I should add that this would have been a book published in the mid-1980s.
