A WOMAN was left feeling pretty foolish after buying a VERY adult cartoon book for her six-year-old granddaughter.
According to Twitter user Tiffany, from the US, her mother had failed to peek inside the book before presenting it to her little girl as a gift.
Unfortunately though, Tiffany also hadn’t bothered to inspect its content, but was alerted when her daughter, while reading it with her dad, exclaimed: “I don’t even know what this means.”
In response, he asked his wife: “Did your mom get this as a joke? Is this a serious book?”
The glossy hardback, entitled If Animals Could Talk, and apparently bought from the kids section of American book chain Barnes & Noble, features cute illustrations of a bear, a crocodile and a blowfish on its cover.
But a quick flick through the pages reveals that what the animals “say” is definitely not suitable for a young audience.
A kangaroo asks: “Where the f*** are my keys” while rooting through its pouch, while a polar bear admits: “I think I have a coke problem.”
Meanwhile a fluffy yellow chick exclaims: “Aight, let’s tear the roof off this mutha f***a!”
Sharing snaps of the pages, Tiffany tweeted: “I’m dying. My mom bought this book for my six-year-old and I just called to ask if she had actually opened the book. She hadn’t.”
Her tweet, which was posted yesterday, notched up more than 33,500 retweets and 89,289 likes.
I just looked at more of it looking for the puffer fish and was dying. pic.twitter.com/xD1fnDZH8f

In response, a fellow Twitter user wrote: “OMG please let this be available as an Audible book by Samuel L. Jackson.”
Another commented: “Good thing you took a gander before busting it out with the kids!!!” while one observed: “That’s the best Grandma Foul ever.”
Tiffany admitted: “I couldn’t even talk when I called her.”
Earlier this year we told how a gran knitted a shark blanket for her grandson – but the end result was hilariously inappropriate.
And these grandparents were furious when they bought their eight-year-old a bath set that contained a lewd message.
