“If Animals Could Talk” is the Next Great NSFW Kid’s Book

Remember a few year's back when Samuel L Jackson delighted parents everywhere with his narration of the NSFW humor book Go the F*** to Sleep?

I think I just found his next project.

If Animals Could Talk is a 96-page book that, at first glance, looks like it was written for beginning readers and contains innocuous sayings. But looks can be deceiving, as one parent found out recently.

Twitter blew up yesterday when a mother started posting photos of a book that had been recently given to her daughter.  "I’m dying. My mom bought this book for my 6 year old and I just called to ask if she had actually opened the book. She hadn’t," the mom, Tiffany, tweeted when sharing this photo:

You can find more photo's on Tiffany's Twitter account.

The book is filled with similar illustrations, including these screenshots from Amazon's "Look Inside" option:

 

Unfortunately, Tiffany didn't realize this until after hr daughter was reading the book. "6 year old was reading with Dad and said 'I don’t even know what this means", she tweeted.

The book was published last April, and can be ordered on Amazon for around $7, where it is out of stock in Amazon's warehouses (but still available from 3rd-party sellers at $30 and up).

if you want one, you would be better off waiting for the next print run or heading to BookFinder to find another seller (this title is still cheap in B&N's marketplace).

There is no Kindle or audiobook edition, but I would expect that to change soon.

“I’ve been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It’s a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog.”

  2. “‘great’ NSFW kid’s book”?
    I must be missing something. I didn’t see anything even the slightest bit humorous.
