Grandma accidentally buys explicit book for grandchild in amusing error
An innocent grandma has been left mortified after she accidentally bought an obscene book that she thought was for kids.
Mum Tiffany tweeted a photo of a book that her mum had bought for her 6 year old having clearly not read it herself:
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
The book, called 'If Animals Could Talk', had all the exterior signs that would definitely lead one to think it was for children.
Except that when you actually READ it, it was definitely, DEFINITELY not suitable for kids, especially those aged 6 years old or younger.
One Twitter user remarked that it was incredibly lucky that Tiffany had taken a look at the book before reading it to her kids, except, well... she hadn't either.

Nope! 6 year old was reading with Dad and said “I don’t even know what this means” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
He goes “did your mom get this as a joke? Is this a serious book?” 😂😂😂— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
It sounds like Tiffany's mum was pretty mortified, but claimed innocence having found the book in the kids' section of Barnes & Noble.
She said it was on the kids table at Barnes & Noble 😳— tiffany (@Tiffany1985B) October 4, 2017
Maybe they can save the book until her children are a bit older...
🙈 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
