Below is a picture of Tiffany and her family. Her oldest daughter, Emmersyn is six years old and already an “avid reader,” according to BuzzFeed News.
Being an avid reader means getting you a gift is super easy. A few weeks ago, Emmersyn’s grandma picked up a book for her in Barnes & Noble (those are still around?!) titled “If Animals Could Talk.”
Can you blame her? The book looks adorable and most definitely child-friendly. Despite being an avid reader myself, I too literally judge books by their cover. This one features a bear, a blowfish, and an alligator and unbeknownst to Tiffany’s mom is actually one of those children’s books for adults, like Nobody Likes A Cockblock, You Have To F*cking Eat, and Go the F*ck To Sleep.
Said Tiffany to Mashable via DM (What a world!):
“So my daughter picked this book out for her nightly reading. My mom had gotten it for her a couple weeks ago actually, but she hadn’t cracked it. So I was cleaning the kitchen and she sat down with my husband, Cody, to read it. So he brings it over to me and shows me the page with the chick on it. I immediately called my mom and asked her if she had looked in the book and she said ‘no why?’ So I started reading her a bunch of pages and she was like ‘Oh my God! I got that off the kids table at Barnes & Noble!'”
When Tiffany tweeted about it, her little tale instantly blew up (What a world!).
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. ???? pic.twitter.com/inYCEaZKpV— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
She shared a couple other images from the book:
Luckily my husband caught it on the first page...which he thought was weird for a kids book: pic.twitter.com/MrRCMyE6F8— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
I just looked at more of it looking for the puffer fish and was dying. pic.twitter.com/xD1fnDZH8f— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017

Needless to say, Twitter loved it. Here are some of the best reactions:
Tiffany, as I wipe tears from eyes and catch my breath from laughing too hard I want to thank you for making my day.— Chuck (@roushford16) October 4, 2017

I would literally read this to my children though.— ?Michael Myers (@torriangray) October 4, 2017
My daughter received the "Go The F*ck To Sleep" book as a gag. 6 yo Grdaughter found it and read it aloud to her 4 yo bro. Hilarity ensued.— DianaD (@DianaDaschel) October 4, 2017
OMG please let this be available as an Audible book by Samuel L. Jackson.— Schadenfreudelish (@aggierican) October 4, 2017
The viral tweet even caught the author of the book’s attention:
? haha. I appreciate Granny's taste. Maybe you can regift on your 6 yr old's 18th? ? Glad it gave you some laughs. Hope you enjoy the book.— Josh Cassidy (@joshcassidy_) October 4, 2017
