Childrens Books? Thats questionable...

I work with awesome people. When I thought I didn't have anything fun planned for todays blog post they helped me out (last week) and brought in some fun books that had me laughing.

It's up to you to decide if you want to consider them children's books or not... but I'd say it's questionable.







My personal favorite: All my friends are dead (IT WAS HILARIOUS).

What's your favorite?

IN PROPER NEWS: Tera Lynn Childs will be at Blue Willow Bookshop this evening. I'm very excited. If you're in Houston you better come by. She's brilliant!

Let me think now... no I suspect these are adult books!! I've heard about Go the F*k to Sleep one and it's meant to be hilarious. Not seen any of them myself though.

"Where Willy Went - The Big Story of a Little Sperm"

Kristine Asselin said...

OMG, these titles are hilarious! I heard the audio version of GO THE F*** TO SLEEP is awesome, but I haven't heard it yet(I think it's read by Samuel L. Jackson--now I've got to go find it...)

Have a great day!

Kristine, that's the link and yes it's great. They took the pictures off but the narration is still there.

Have you heard the Samuel L Jackson audio book on Go the Fuck to Sleep? It's so funny! It's on YouTube, look it up! It's totally worth it :o)

Too funny. I think they would be awesome books for children - older children :)

RosieC said...

Awesome. I've heard of some of these, but not all. Monsters Eat Whiny Children, though? That's a classic!

Matthew MacNish said...

Damn. Jess stole my thunder. I was going to mention the same thing (it is really funny).

Vanilla Mama said...

Haha - I actualy bought All My Friends are Dead for my 15 year old for Christmas. It is too funny!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Okay, running off to check out All My Friends are Dead on Amazon ...

Teenage Bride said...

Hi Jen!! Thank you so much for your sweet comment y==the other day, it made me smile.

In other news... my husband read me the third book the other night after I had been talking about goodnight moon... I was like babe, really that is so inappropriate hahaha

Go the * to Sleep is definitely not for kids! I hope the first one isn't for older readers, because that would just be cruel.

Sarah Ahiers (Falen) said...

OMG - i totally want the "All My Friends Are Dead" one! That just made my day, good lady!

"Go the F*** To Sleep" would have been a great book for someone to give me as a young parent - I wouldn't have felt so guilty about wanting to shout out that title to my insomniac toddler once in a while. (I didn't. And he grew out of it of course, increasing by increments until he was sleeping the normal 18 hours as a teenager.)

Laura Josephsen said...

WOW. What titles. I'd heard of the "Go the F*** to Sleep" one, but not the others. "All My Friends Are Dead"!?! I want to read it just to see what it's like. ;) And the "Monsters Eat Whiny Children."

Marsha Sigman said...

Holy Crap! I love them all, how could I choose? I haven't read any of them but I am soooo planning to now.hahha

i know the go the f*k to sleep one is read by samuel l jackson, which is perfect. i've seen these at urban outfitters but now i want to read them!

Brigid Gorry-Hines said...

All My Friends Are Dead is such a hilarious book. I love it. :D I haven't read the others ... I've heard about Go the F*** to sleep but not the other two. I'll have to look out for them. ;)

Theresa Milstein said...

I want to read All my Friends are Dead!

Go the F*ck to Sleep is so funny. Did you see Samuel L. Jackson read it on You Tube? I pride myself on having children who know I won't tolerate not going to sleep nonsense. But I've had friends who had this craziness going on when I've visited, so I can relate. In fact, I'm such a hard-a** about my kids going to sleep because of those experiences!

Jessie said...

OMGah! I'm dyin' with laughter over here...
I think my favorite is "All My Friends Are Dead" as well, but "Go the F to Sleep" comes in a close second.

XD <3

I read All My Friends Are Dead in a store promoting HIV/AIDS research. It was really funny. I love children books for cynical children. They remind me of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events.

Go the F0k to Sleep looks pretty good too.

Melissa Ann Goodwin said...

I think I like Monsters Eat Whiny Children, because it sounds like something a really exasperated parent might actually say! But kid's books? I don't think so - I think these are for Mom & Dad! My husband is wishing Go the F#ck to Sleep was around when his son was little.

Elana Johnson said...

LOL! Yes, the All My Friends Are Dead made me chuckle.

Ashley Nixon said...

I want to read all of them! I think All My Friends Are Dead was the funniest.

Also, I tagged you in a meme! :) When you get a chance, head over to my blog and check it out! It was fun!

Chris Phillips said...

All My Friends Are Dead made me cry laughing.

KimberlyJ said...

All My Friends Are Dead looks hilarious. I need to find that one! :)

Caitlin said...

I've only been exposed to Go the F*ck to sleep, and personally almost pissed myself laughing while listening to Samuel L Jackson read it. Twice. (OK three times).

Melissa Bradley said...

I think Go the F*** to Sleep is my favorite. But All My Friends are Dead sounds hilarious so I'll have to check it out.
