Grandma Accidentally Buys Rated “R” Enid Blyton Book For Her Daughter


Simply put, it wasn’t the best of bedtime stories, it wasn’t a bad joke, either; it was simply the case of a mistake which has been termed “the best Grandma foul ever.”

Next time you decide to buy a book with cartoons of animals (dogs, cats, crocs, polar bears) for your kids, be careful enough to actually read the book yourself.

Here is a lesson for you:

A Grandma who didn’t expect a bookstore to be such a confusing and “dangerous” place, ended up making a big – and quite hilarious – mistake, rather unwittingly.

According to a story posted by a woman named Tiffany Hoeft on Twitter; her mum, Geri picked up a ‘lovely’ book called If Animals Could Talk. She’d found the book while shopping for magazines at Barnes & Noble, and decided to buy it for her six-year-old granddaughter, Emmersyn, since she always did that.

In fact, Emmersyn’s mom, Tiffany described her daughter as being an “avid reader.”

The problem was, she didn’t read through it before handing it over.

At first glance, ‘If Animals Could Talk‘ looks a lot like just another children’s book but the truth is, it’s not just another children’s book.

Blimey! It’s not even meant for kids at all!

The book is rated “R”, and rightly so, since it contains adult material – think swear words, jokes about cocaine, vaginas, bananas (no really, BANANAS) and things meant for grown-ups.

Funnily enough, Tiffany told BuzzFeed that even she herself didn’t notice at first how really NSFW the book was, at least not until Emmersyn sat down to read it with her dad – thankfully.

The first page was subtly normal, with a cartoon of a gorilla talking about how much he loved bananas.

Flip to page two, and things went all “weird!” On it was a picture of a chick who was contemplating breaking another just-hatching chick out if its shell. The former proclaimed, “Aight, let’s tear the roof off this motha fucka.”

That was when Cody (Emmersyn’s father) took a closer look at the book, and discovered that the colorful animal cartoon pictures were just a facade – it was all “hard to the core!”

Tiffany said she and her husband, were “cracking up” over the incident. She asked her mom if she bought the book as a joke. She hadn’t…

She told BuzzFeed:
“So I called my mom and I was like, ‘Remember that book you got Emmy (her daughter), If Animals Could Talk ?
And she’s like yeah. I said, “Did you actually open it?” And she said no.

I started reading some of the pages to her, and she was mortified.”

Thank goodness Emmy was none the wiser to the incident, telling her father “I don’t even know what this means.”

Of course, Tiffany posted the story on Twitter, and the book seemed very popular among users.

As of Sunday (October 8), Tiffany’s original tweet has 254,490+ likes and 89,250+ shares on Twitter.

Tiffany says her mom, Geri was actually embarrassed that she had posted the story on Twitter, but that’s surely “lesson learned” for Grandma.

Now she won’t forget to check every “children’s book” she buys, in the future.
